JOIN PopRally for a special night with MARTIN MAZORRA & 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. – PRESS RELEASE
FOLLOWING presentations by the artists, GRETCHEN WAGNER, Curatorial Assistant in MoMA’s Department of Prints & Illustrated Books, moderates a discussion about the artists’ work. A cocktail reception follows the event.
