About Space 1026
Founded in 1997 at 1026 Arch Street in Philadelphia’s Chinatown, Space 1026 is headquarters for a network of artists who want to do it their own way, together. Their new home at 844 North Broad Street hosts a gallery for exhibitions and performances, member studios, print facilities, a woodshop, and a garden.

Space 1026 is constantly evolving. Member artists are united in their shared enthusiasm for creating art and taking giant leaps of faith. With 20 current members and a long list of alumni, the collective is defined by its member artists. And their friends. And the people who visit the gallery exhibitions. And the people who remember to buy more hand soap for the bathrooms. And the people who come to the events, workshops, and music shows.

Artist members of Space 1026 exhibit their art individually and work collaboratively to create installations. Most recently Space 1026 has shown at Vox Populi Gallery; exhibited twice at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; and the DUMBO Arts Center, Brooklyn. In 2010 they created an installation at The Print Center in Philadelphia.

Fracking is an environmental health hazard used to cultivate precious resources from our soil, it not only destroys the earth but endangers communities depending on that land by introducing pollutants into the water and soil of indigenous and often black and brown communities. What if our governments prioritized the deep digging of our emotional worlds, rather than our lands? What hidden resources lie within the depths of our bodies? Emotional Fracking poses the question: What if the amount of money put into destroying our earth to find oil was applied to the individual, the community? What would it mean if we used Emotional Fracking to cultivate deep personal growth that could help us create a more liveable and peaceful world?

ANNSON CONAWAY | In Some Room Above The Street

April 7 – April 28, 2023

Opening Reception
Friday April 7
6pm – 10 pm

SPACE 1026
844 N. Broad St.

Annson Conaway is an artist based in Gouglersville, Pennsylvania. The body of work in his solo exhibition, IN SOME ROOM ABOVE THE STREET, shows people gathered in interior spaces doing mostly mundane, everyday activities.

In one scene, commuters sit side-by-side and escape into their personal portable distractions. In another, a family watches a Phillies game huddled around a TV together. We see a couple seated around the fire, one asleep and one contently becoming radicalized by her choice of reading material; a trio of people smoking cigarettes in a gritty, unidentifiable public space, decorated with only a tiny trash can and a giant Pennsylvania Lottery ad; and two guys working on a car in their garage, a pinup poster and a novelty street sign hiding in the shadows around a bright window with a view of identical rowhomes. While not always glamorous, these scenes aren’t all drab—we also see a jazz singer and pianist in patterned gowns performing around a red curtain—though it’s unclear who their audience is, or if they even have one.

And then there’s the apparent outlier: a nude woman reclined in the desert, a figure walking towards her silhouetted by the sunset. Is it a mirage? A fantasy of escape? Or are these the lucky ones that got away from it all and made it out to the other side…

In these rooms above the street, people are living their lives. And in a room above a street, Annson created these pieces. And now, at last, you have the pleasure of viewing them in—you guessed it—SOME ROOM ABOVE THE STREET!
