In a gallery we’re accustomed to assuming that what we see is finished: a completed thought, a branded message, an assuredly executed product. However, what happens in the studio is often far from the conclusions usually presented to the public. There are failed experiments, unfinished sentences, inconclusive outcomes. There is a sense of journeying into uncharted territory, a glimmer of an idea not yet seen or s...tated. This is what keeps us coming back!

Flying body parts, demons from hell, and an unholy avalanche of blood will fill the theater in an unforgettable and highly entertaining Show. Do Not Wear Your Nice Clothes To This Show!

Own a piece of CELL, and a piece of public art history!
From time to time, the exterior walls at CELL need refresh and rebuild. We have just rebuilt and begun to repaint one of the panels on the Bryant Street facade. But we have kept elements of the older mural.
The popular mural, "Lady Liberty," has been preserved and is now FOR SALE by permission of the artist.
The mural is for sale as is.
(cash only, must be picked up on site)
Sale of this mural will benefit the artist Dia, and CELLspace. It was painted and created with volunteer labor for the volunteer-managed Bryant Street Mural Project.

Meggs (Everfresh Crew, Melbourne, Australia) and Vexta were in San Francisco for the Young & Free show a few weeks back. They spent most of their time up in the Tenderloin, but managed to work in a few hours at the walls on Bryant St. Here is the character that Meggs painted.

Chicken John's Lost Vegas was featured in an episode of CELLtv
From the desk of Dave X....
So most of you know the legend named Chicken John.
I met him at the Defenestration Project years ago where he had just landed with his Circus Redickuless crew. It was like meeting a small tornado of motivation, confusion, resource and physical presence. This whirlwind was holding together the strangest collection of self-described freaks and circus folks I had yet meet.
Over the years, some of the most memorable events I have had the pleasure and disgust to work with have been his:
- The Game show run...
- The Lost Vegas shows...
- Junk Man Bill's benefit
- And many others
He trashed the Cell, berated all who he found in his way and pretty much did as he wanted to at all times. But somewhere in that self-promoting guy lives a tiny saint who has come to CELLspace's rescue many times. He has stood up for issues that many thought were lost and backed the un-backable.
Well he also has a warehouse and - surprise, surprise - it is in danger and needs money to stay open! I know this sounds familiar...
Of course, he is doing more than just begging. He has written a book describing his life of smoke and mirrors and is selling it to raise the funds for his space.
Help Chicken to stay in his coop by buying one of these sure-to-become-underground-best-sellers now before they are gone. If you miss out, you may feel robbed. You may feel that anyway but please buy the book.
Chicken is also having a opening to promote the book and that night promises to be full of fun and surprises from the past.
More info on the book and the event here.

All things converged today as Ha Ha, Meggs, and Vexta, in town for the all-Aussie Young & Free exhibit, made it down to the Mission for a day of public painting. Ha Ha painted his infamous Ned Kelly piece as well as some Geronimo portraits on the new collaborative mural that's going up (Cy Wagoner, Todd Hanson, Scott Williams, Russell Howze, and others) by the Project 2048 entrance. Meggs and Vexta dropped pieces down the block on the edge of CELLspace's muraled walls.
