Art Auction and Book Pre Release

ART AUCTION THIS SATURDAY!!!!I know its a little late, but its definitely going to be worth it this saturday. If you are not aware, space1026 is part of an exhibition at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts ( opening jan 12th in san francisco. The donations of artwork and artwork sold are being used to cover expenses for traveling, eating and potentially bathing for space members in SF. We are also pleased to announce the pre-sale of the space1026 book titled “pulling teeth.” The book is not an anthology, history or print book of the space, but more like an exploration of the events and energy that make the space such a special thing to us. This Hard Bound 128 page masterpiece of the mundane was meticulously compiled, edited and laid out by Mary Chen, Jesse Goldstien, Tony Smyrski , and Aryon Hoselton. The book is hopefully part of an ongoing series of self published books addressing different themes about the space. Come to the auction to see some of the page spreads and pre-order yours at a “friends of the space” super dooper discount – limited edition signed, including art auction posters as a thank you for the support.
