Spaceness 2018

Fri, March 2 @ 7:00 pm – Sun, March 4 @ 12:00 pm

SPACENESS is a celebration of time, space and the unknown through experimental art, media and performance. Each year SPACENESS takes over the Sou’Wester Lodge in Seaview, WA, as well as the adjacent forest, seashore and wild spaces.

The next celebration of Spaceness is MARCH 2-4, 2018. Spaceness is FREE and welcoming to people of all ages. We recommend attendees secure lodging at one of the many comfortable establishments in the nearby towns of Astoria (OR), Ilwaco, Seaview, and Long Beach (WA) to enjoy the entire weekend of programming.

Spaceness was founded by Portland artists Julia Barbee, Matt Suplee, and Alison Jean Cole and has been awarded funding by the Precipice Fund, Calligram Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the Portland chapter of the Awesome Foundation.


SPACENESS 2018 will be accepting proposals from Sept 20, 2017 to Nov 1, 2017.


Entering the twenty-first century we have myriad human theories and logical arguments that explain the existence of our galaxy, the heavens, and the universe; however, that pool of knowledge is insufficient in addressing what we still do not know – the things that baffle and confound our species – truths that may evade us for eternity. These are the concepts that fall under the definition of “spaceness’.
