Art Auction 2019

2019 Auction Postcard Back

6PM Doors Open
7PM Bidding Begins

We are excited to host our annual Art Auction at 844 North Broad Street. Attendees can expect the same fun and excitement from this art community staple while celebrating the inaugural event in their new home. Think of it as a housewarming party where YOU get the presents.

Space 1026 has continued to thrive for 22 years with the support of its members past and present, as well as those within the Philadelphia community. The annual Art Auction has always been a major calendar event – donations and attendance from the auction foster our continued existence as an art collective and DIY venue in a very crucial way. In its 22nd year, Space 1026 continues to provide affordable studio spaces, house a shared silk screen facility, and offers members a chance to be part of the Philadelphia art community while serving as a supportive venue for a variety of gallery programs and workshops

The Art Auction donations contribute to Space 1026 in a multitude of ways. They help sustain the Space 1026 gallery and studio facilities. They cover the cost of repairs, equipment and materials; they enable artists to create and print promotional postcards at openings for visiting artists; they supplement continued participation in group shows, and cover other costs necessary in hosting events throughout the year. The Art Auction also provides an accessible means for new audiences to discover and own unique artwork donated by members and supporters. Not only does the auction feature work from prominent Space 1026 members like Adam Wallacavage, Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Alex Lukas, Tara Booth, and James Ulmer, but it also boats a collection of pieces from celebrated national artists like Charles Burns, Tim Kerr, Ed Templeton and Erin Riley.

As much as this is a fundraising event for us, it’s also a party for YOU, the community that has unwaveringly supported our DIY mission through all these fun and messy years. There will be food, beverages, an awesome live auctioneer, music, and overall rowdiness. As for the auctioning itself, we invite everyone to participate and enjoy. This event is a great opportunity for collectors both seasoned and just starting out, to get their hands on a piece of original artwork at an affordable price.

In some ways, this year is unlike any other for our members; in others, it is no less different – for we are fortunate to have the support of a strong community that continues to promote eclectic gallery programming and a growing network of artists, a community whose love and appreciation is sure to follow us to our new doorstep. So come celebrate with the Space 1026 family as we host the very first Art Auction to be held at 844 North Broad Street.

FLEEGIX (2019, dir. by Matthew Thurber)
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1209343473/fleegix
Shot on 16mm film, Matthew Thurber’s FLEEGIX is a science-fiction film set on Earth, although some of the population have become convinced that they are in fact living on the planet Mars.
FLEEGIX includes both live action, stop motion and hand drawn animated segments. The appearance of animation in the narrative is to illustrate propaganda, such as depictions of newsworthy events on Mars. This film is an organism that grows and continues to develop a web of connected motifs and ideas. FLEEGIX is constructed through the accumulation of short scenes that echo and lead into each other, making connections across time and space. It is a a “Fairy story” whose construction resembles a role-playing game, rather than a simulation of standard motion picture narrative. At the heart of the film is the question as to how Fleegix, a beverage enjoyed by Martians, is manufactured. The film details further conflict among New York Martians who express themselves in animated movement, and the Hand Shadow Punks of Baltimore, who represent a pre-cinematic faction. The film proposes various absurd answers to this question, and the dispute takes on symbolic and mythological proportions.
