MAX 2019: A Space Festival


Join MAX at the Intersection of Art and Science

We are proud to announce that in our first year we will be presenting world-class artists, scientists, and artist-engineers in some of San Francisco’s most renowned venues.

In MAX 2019: A Space Festival with 3 days of programming at The Exploratorium, the California Academy of Sciences, and Z Space, we will present works, small and large, that explore the new space age, the extraordinary scientific advances in this field, and the effect on our lives.



The Outer Space

A couple buys an old spaceship to leave behind an overcrowded Earth in a musical about moving out and into the final frontier.

Ethan Lipton and his band take you on a journey about trying to run away from it all only to run into yourself, in space.

Universal Threads

Take fashion into the 4th dimension!

Watch these celestial looks come to life with augmented reality. Artist Andrea Lauer and Astrophysicist Janna Levin use fashion as a medium to communicate the story of the universe, and the mysteries of Spacetime.

The Final Frontier

Festival Closing Night Cabaret and The After Party of the Universe!

Mix with artists, scientists, engineers, and their avatars as we close MAX 2019 and introduce the themes of the next MAX festival!
