As an adjective, the word "retrospective" means looking back on or dealing with past events or situations. As a noun, it means an exhibition or compilation showing the development of the work of an artist over a period of time. Here we show you a look back on akkseum: the artists that showed their work here, the openings, live music and parties we've hosted here, and the space itself as it was during that time. But this is not solely a look back — it is most definitely a look into the future as well. As we reflect back on what akkseum was, we continue to set our sights on a rejuvination of this same vision.
