Call for Submissions: San Francisco’s Space Gallery…the Beatles! Artwork for a September show.

Introducing – THE BEATLES!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SAN FRANCISCO

On September 9th 2009 (9-9-09) Space Gallery is hosing a dramatic and intense

exhibition that explores the extent and magnitude of popular culture’s biggest

influence – The Beatles.

The Beatles’ influence on rock music and popular culture was, and remains, immense. Their commercial success started an almost immediate wave of changes—including shifts in music, fashion, politics, film and art that are still considered relevant today.

 For the exhibition, entitled “Number 9,” Space Gallery, curator Rand Shuler and artist Sean Ward will hand-select an extensive and thought-provoking collection of artworks, including paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, film and performance that not only explore the legacy of Beatlemania, but also trace the very evolution of present-day popular culture.

 With consideration to everything from the enormity of Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s lyrics, to the complexity of Yellow Submarine director George Dunning’s artwork, each artist will be challenged to create a reflection of the youthful optimism, nihilist recoil, subversive subtext and family-friendly persona of the Fab 4.

 The Number 9 exhibition opens with a reception on Wednesday, Sept 9, 2009 and runs through Monday Sept 14. Space Gallery 1141 Polk Street SF CA 94109 www.spacegallerysf.com
