On Saturday, Aug. 6, at 9:15pm, join us for the AFTER-CRAWL AUCTION in the Silo Room at Track One. The auction will feature items and videos contributed by eighteen artists, whose brilliant and/or bizarre responses to everyday stuff might just convince you to spend money. The auction itself will be a live multimedia performance conducted by David Hellams and David King. This event comes just a few months after David and David’s popular interactive exhibition, The Crappy Magic Experience, at Seed Space. Come with a mind to score an unusual treasure, or just enjoy the screenings and see what happens!
All proceeds of this auction benefit Seed Space, a not-for-profit art venue, in support of future programming.
