End of Days Preview Party

Friday, October 11, 2019, 7:00PM

In the spirit of experimentation, SPACES has moved away from our traditional Annual Benefit model and we’re trying something totally new: This year’s event, End of Days, will be an immersive, artist-designed, unsettling exhibition experience that will transform our gallery space into 7 “rooms” designed by artists Kristin Rogers & Pita Brooks, Zachary Smoker + Steve Smolinski, Joey Strunk, Kate Atherton, Cassie Harner, Ben Oblivion, and Susie Underwood, with a soundtrack by Matthew Gallagher. End of Days will kick off with a special VIP Preview Party on Friday, October 11th, where we will honor Jill Snyder, Executive Director of moCa Cleveland, and Phyllis Harris, Executive Director of LGBT Community Center (and former SPACES Board Member) for the excellent work...read more

All sponsors receive tickets to the VIP Preview Party. The exhibition will then be open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (plus Halloween) through November 2nd. All proceeds from the event will benefit SPACES' programming.

Matthew Gallagher

Matthew Gallagher’s work sits both decidedly within and defiantly outside art historical context, displaying critical knowledge of and homage to his artistic antecedents while staking new paths in every direction.
