[x]space is an interactive art making and exhibition space accessible to youth and community members of all ages. The “x” in [x]space is related to exchange, experimentation, Excelsior, and x as a variable. Visit us at the heart of the Excelsior on Mission & Geneva.
Youth need the arts. They need a safe space to innovate, create, and call their own. We’ve always dreamed (and dreamed) that one day we would have our own Youth Art Exchange space. After 18 years of borrowing, sharing, and popping up in spaces throughout San Francisco, our dream is coming true as Youth Art Exchange and ArtSpan partner for [x]space.
Transformed from a meat market (Chuck’s Market) that was shuttered for nearly a decade, this space is focused on creative exchange between artists and community. It is an active arts center by Youth Art Exchange with free classes and programming for San Francisco public high school students, workshops, a youth printshop, ArtSpan’s artist studios, an art gallery, community meeting space, and venue rentals.
