NEW AGE NOW: Art Auction features the works of eleven artists and artworks that use beeswax, photography, spray paint, silkscreen, a salad bowl, mud, terrycloth towel, plastic, indigo canvas, duct tape, and birdsnest. Within this alchemical field of materials, we look for the future ad hoc: How can artistic experimentation articulate strategies for collective and long term sustainability?

This auction/exhibition is further contextualized with a transcendental menu with appetizers specifically prepared for the occasion by artists Brandon Alvendia, Jessica Campbell, Rebecca Mir Grady, Kiam Marcelo Junio, Alyssa Martinez, Eric May, Midnight Kitchen Projects, Kathleen Rooney, and Edra Soto.
