Tue-Sun 1-6; or by appointment


The artist collective from Space 1026 in Philadelphia, PA has been showing small works at EGOPARK of Oakland, CA through the month of May as a part of a group installation curated by Adam Hatch.

Featured artists will include Andrew Jeffery Wright, Alex Lukas, Bill McRight, Crystal Stokowski, Delilah Knuckley, Mark Price, Thom Lessner, Zac Beaver, and more. Beyond the network of artists, musicians, designers, and friends that make up the involved creative community, SPACE 1026 is an independently funded studio space, printmaking workshop, recording studio, and store, as well as a gallery for emerging artists located on the edge of Philadelphia's Chinatown.

This show will serve as an introduction to the collective who will be returning to Oakland in June for their large scale installation at LOBOT GALLERY. Members of SPACE 1026 who will be participating in both events will be present at the EGO PARK closing ceremonies May 30th 2-9pm (artist reception 6-9p).

The {collective}, which just celebrated its 10th birthday, has shown their work at the Institute of Contemporary Art, as well as internationally in London and Milan, and recently were invited to speak at New York's Museum of Modern Art on the topic of collaborative printmaking.

The work of the current members, individually and as a whole, spans all artistic mediums, from wheat-pasting to welding, screen-printing to linoleum cut, electronics to cinematography and clothing design, providing a unique, diverse and enlightening balance of creativity and a buttress for collaborations.
