|AN EVENING WITH CANNONBALL PRESS and SPACE 1026
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2008
Join PopRally for a special night with Martin Mazorra and Mike Houston, printmakers and founders of Cannonball Press, along with artists from Space 1026, a unique creative community located in downtown Philadelphia.
Cannonball Press is a Brooklyn-based organization that produces affordable black and white prints by a number of artists (including Sean Star Wars, David Rees, David Ellis, Maya Hayuk, and Swoon.) In addition to their own art, Mazorra and Houston also work together to create large-format woodcut prints. Space 1026 was founded over a decade ago by a handful of artists and tricksters who organize rowdy public events and outrageous installations at their building and at other institutions. At the heart of Space 1026 is a communal screenprinting workshop where the madness comes to life.
Following presentations by the artists, Gretchen Wagner, Curatorial Assistant in MoMA's Department of Prints & Illustrated Books, moderates a discussion about the artists' work, printmaking, collaborations, and more. A cocktail reception follows the event.
PopRally would like to thank Fred and Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte for their sponsorship.
