A Weekend of Schizo-Culture

The closing Schizo-Culture Weekend will activate many of the subjects touched on by SPACE’s current exhibition: Schizo-Culture: Cracks In The Street.

Musical performances from Saturday afternoon will re-visit the bristling energy of 70′s Schizo-anarchy and its legacies and will run into the late evening. There will be a bar throughout at SPACE and the entire weekend is free and open to all.
