Here are some links to learn more about MAS (Mutual Appreciation Society) Attack:

Alibi: "Imagine a festive “one-night-only” art event more like a rock concert than a gallery opening. No fancy, self-conscious people milling about a cavernous, half-empty gallery space sipping chardonnay from plastic cups. Instead, a low-key venue that holds over 50 accomplished artists and their boisterous fans in a crowded space jam-packed with overlapping artwork. And the main aim of the night? For artists to network and socialize. (No sales allowed!)"

Local IQ: "For one night only, Albuquerque is being invaded — by artists. MAS ATTACK, a city-to-city exhibit put on by ARTRA Curatorial, hails from Los Angeles. It is a project designed to put together 30 L.A. artists with 30 Albuquerque artists to create a collage exhibit meant to spark conversation, creativity and collaboration."

ARTRA: "The event is sponsored by Creative Albuquerque and ARTRA Curatorial
ARTRA Curatorial is a volunteer organization for the implementation of new modes of exhibition, locally, nationally and internationally, that feature artist-led emerging platforms and opportunity based interactions and community building via social practice type events.

Founded by Max Presneill and Colton Stenke in 2009 and now joined by Kio Griffith, the group has instigated large scale art events and exchanges, as well as the alternative art fair Co/Lab, throughout Los Angeles and has new projects being presented in China, France and UK in 2014, as well as the continuation of their MAS ATTACK series of events both in LA and other US cities."
