45 Revolutions Per Minute, 45 Years of SoEx - Annual Benefit Art Auction

It's our biggest celebration of the year, and we need your help to pull it off!

45 REVOLUTIONS PER MINUTE, 45 YEARS OF SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is a celebration of the ways Southern Exposure has supported the Bay Area's diverse art ecosystems over the decades. On March 23, the grand atrium of Minnesota Street Project will be the stage for highlighting some of the greatest A-Side hits from SoEx’s history of presenting cutting edge artworks. Join us for vintage vinyl spinning by DJ Hot Fruit, pop-up performances, and the chance to bid on more than 100 works of contemporary art from emerging and internationally recognized artists through live and silent auctions. 

See it all unfold from behind the scenes by volunteering. Do it for the SoEx community – and for free admission to the event!
