Gettin’ ready for the New Year – 2015!

It’s been a busy and colorful year for 1AM – we started with an immaculate solo show by new artist J.S. Weis before embarking on our biggest international show curated by Poesia and didn’t stop there. Through the months we featured Chinese writers Xeme and Sinic, blasted the gallery with color from Sen2, and finished out the summer with hand-styles, fire and Hawaiian flowers by Kamea and Defer in “Paradise Lost”. Our second half of the year started with a killer show by French artist Ratur and ended with a group shows of some of our favorite local artists and a final exhibit by TES ONE and BASK!

We decided to kick off 2015 with a celebratory show of artists from 2014 and new artists you’ll be seeing in 2015 and we can’t wait to introduce it to you on Thursday, January 8th, 6:30-9:30pm. Here’s a taste of what’s to come – we hope you’ll join us to celebrate!

Once again it’s that time of the year and the holiday season is upon us! As 2014 draws close, a look back at last twelve months and we can safely say that this was another amazing year for our community. 1AM gallery represented and exhibited an international sampling of art works that revealed the overall character of graffiti and street art and its relationship to the public and contemporary  art world.

Street Art and Social Change: Millions March

helvqggrqmi5dypryen8

Last Saturday, tens of thousands of people participated in the Millions March in various cities around the United States. Some of the largest demonstrations were in Washington D.C., New York City, and here in the Bay Area with actions in San Francisco and Oakland. These demonstrations have been the largest organized actions against police killings and racial profiling yet, in the months since Ferguson. Like most protests, art was used in a variety of ways; from banners and posters, to music, song and dance. Art has a unique way of uniting people and stirring emotions of participators and observers, and that is why it has always been intertwined with social movements. We have seen a number of different art projects in the post-Ferguson movement, but from the demonstrations this last weekend it was French street artist, JR‘s, enlarged image of Eric Garner’s eyes held by the front line protesters that stunned us. We look forward to seeing how art is used in the streets, in this movement and others!

Numi brings their whole team for an afternoon adventure!

We had a great time with Numi (who even brought us some free tea!), a local Oakland company that came by during their anniversary week of fun. They learned about the culture of graffiti and created some colorful murals for their office! Numi Workshop! Numi Workshop! Read More »
