4×4 Sneak Peak: Space 1026

With the 4×4 exhibition at the Martin Art Gallery at Muhlenberg College set to open in just a few days, we will dispense long introductions. The show looks great! And soon you will be able to see all about it right here, but in the mean time we wet your appetite with a few more sneak peak posts.

This time we are parting the veil and taking a look behind the scenes at Philadelphia’s venerable art collective, Space 1026. In addition to a photo tour of all manner of studio spaces, we also got a good look at their screen printing workshop.. which quite frankly has enough DIY-punk-rock authenticity to blow the fake lumber jack gear off of half the borough of Brooklyn.

Here you can see Matt Leines doing a little pencil pushing.
And with little prodding he was nice enough to open up his flat files and show us his recent work.

Needless to say this looks like a production oriented shop.
