m0xy is housed in the former Eandi Metal Works in JABC [Jingletown Arts & Business Community] near to the Fruitvale neighborhood of Oakland, CA.
Established in 1928, Eandi Metal works was a national manufacturer of architectural and ornamental steel. Owned and operated by the family for three generations, they closed their doors in 2010. The Driesbach family purchased the building with the intent of preserving the structure for industrial use.
In the spirit of Eandi Metal Works, m0xy is honored to resurrect this historic building, embodying the long-standing history of industrial manufacturing in Oakland. We are proud to usher in a new generation of fabricators, supporting a new wave of industry through public art and collaborative creation.
More than a studio, reaching beyond a gallery space, m0xy is an Arts Incubator. As The Bay Area evolves, studio space for industrial artists, craftsman and fabricators has become increasingly scarce. Meanwhile, the demand for products of these makers is growing exponentially both nationwide and around the world. Offering the affordable studio space that is already in high demand, as well as exhibition space for completed works, m0xy also provides the infrastructure for artists to expand their business. Our resident artists receive all the support they need, from brand strategy, website building and PR through to grants writing and RFP sourcing and presentation to thrive.
The synergy of bringing together artists across disciplines, from welders to set designers, woodworkers to costumers, and ceramicists to 3D printers provides opportunities for large scale collaborative projects that a traditional studio space would never offer. Our goal at m0xy is for our resident artists, and the roster of artists we represent beyond our walls, to be greater than the sum of their parts. We aim for our incubator to inspire and facilitate works that test the bounds of interactivity and imagination.
