BRIGHT NIGHTS: Photographs of Another New York
By Tod Seelie
Published by Prestel Publishing

Tod Seelie loves New York, but not the version depicted in postcards. His city is an underground haven for people at society’s edges, people who come alive at night, who make music and art and noise and mess. This startlingly beautiful collection of images captures a gritty culture that belies the city’s glamorous persona. Here are punk bands and bike parties, abandoned spaces and skeezy clubs, junk-filled lots and sketchy streets. Interspersed throughout the book are texts from Seelie’s friends and fellow artists, along with an introduction by Jeff Stark, editor of the iconic alternative events e-mail list Nonsense NYC. The photographs in the book create a love poem to the city that not only doesn’t sleep—it cavorts around at 3:00 am looking for the next adventure.

With contributions by:
Caledonia Curry (Swoon)
Colin Moynihan (New York Times)
Evan Pricco (Juxtapoz)
Benjamin Shapiro (VICE)
Carlo McCormick (Paper Magazine)
Ian Vanek (Japanther)
Conrad Carlson (Black Label Bicycle Club)

Space 1026 would like to present our auctioneer, Todd Kimmell, AKA That Toddly man!

As he has for damned near every year since we’ve had our auction, Philadelphia’s perennial gentleman of the arts Todd Kimmell joins us again, back from the dead and bigger than ever, as our auctioneer.  Our big lunged friend is not the least bit shy about squeezing every possible penny out of every lot for the benefit of Space 1026, and doing it with a goddam big grin.  Feel free to see some of his work on line…

DEATH COULD BE YOUR GOLDEN BOY an event, hosted by Michael Gerkovich, in conjunction with the Afterlife exhibition.

AUX at Vox Populi

Saturday, November 16, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 pm

A PowerPoint presentation featuring the usual cast of characters, namely Michael Gerkovich himself, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Jason Hsu, Malwina Andruczyk, Billy Fatzinger, Scott Gelber, Abbey Sarver, Lindsey Baker, Sean Hamilton, etc. The Pitch: Together presenters will explore the mysteries of “THE BIG SLEEP” and they have promised not to kill you. This will be an attempt to break the stigma against people who look too far into the abyss. Maybe Death is your dream date or your social worker or your therapist or your best bud or your secret admirer or your internet stalker or your golden boy and you didn’t even consider it??  We do not disappoint.
