SASSAS Presents Fix-It-Up Too
Blum & Poe and The Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS) presents Fix-It-Up Too, a one-day exhibition and silent auction to benefit SASSAS. The exhibition reprises The Fix-It-Up Show, a project first developed by artists Jeffrey Vallance and Michael Uhlenkott for a 1981 exhibition at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) in which well-known artists were asked to contribute works for Vallance and Uhlenkott to alter or “fix.” Both artists will repeat their roles as “fixers.” In addition, internationally recognized artists Barbara Bloom, Meg Cranston, Lisa Lapinski, Dave Muller, Stephen Prina, Jim Shaw, Alexis Smith, Mungo Thomson, and Christopher Williams have also agreed to alter the works of more than 100 artists for this special exhibition and sale. The event features live performances by the Harmonica Rascals, Scott Benzel, and Fat and Fucked Up and will conclude with a special performance at 5:30pm by Scott Benzel and Mark Hagen in the Blum & Poe parking lot.
Doors open from 11:00am to 6:00pm. Bidding for works in the gallery concludes at 5pm. Bidding for Bass Elegy/Devil's Night (for M.K.) by Scott Benzel and Mark Hagen concludes at 6:00pm. Starting bid for all artworks is $100.00. Further information and Saturday’s schedule are available at www.sassas.org/fixitup.
