Singapore-based Chandran Gallery will officially be opening its San Francisco gallery later in the year, after some needed renovations to its building. Before that however, tonight (January 4th) they will be hosting a one night pop-up benefit exhibition/installation in conjunction with Juxtapoz and Power House Productions, with proceeds going to the Iron To Gold/Ashes To Hope Project, which is an artist-in-residence program in Detroit where creative like minds can gather from around the country can share ideas and collaborate.
The original benefit in 2009 (covered) allowed Monica Canilao to begin and maintain her residency headquarters in Detroit, where it has helped several other artists bring their ideas to life. In order to help maintain this, the gallery will be auctioning off artworks donated by the likes of David Ellis, Swoon, Richard Colman, Shepard Fairey and others, via Paddle8 over the next few weeks. Check out the photos below of the artists setting up their elaborate and mesmerizing installation.
