Over the Weekend

rogandraw2.jpg Will Rogan at small A projects

Here's a rundown of some things to do through the weekend...

Small A Projects defies the conventions of First Thursday, First Friday, Second Tuesday and what have you with an opening smack dab in the middle of the month. For her second exhibition, Gitlen presents a solo show of new work by Will Rogan entitled Getting Through. Rogan is a Bay Area artist known for his photographs and video works of “found situations” and incidental sculpture. His work is often about awe, and the incongruous conjunction of the everyday and the fantastic. In this body of work, Rogan takes as a central theme an ordinary life renderedextraordinary. Join Rogan tonight for the opening reception with a conversation with Harrell Fletcher at 8p.
Opening Reception • Thursday, November 17 • 6 to 9p
small A projects • 1430 SE Third • Tel. 503.234.7993

Tomorrow night Mark Woolley presents The Art of Tom Cramer and Music of Klaus Schulze. This evening of art and sound-scapes features Klaus Schulze, Germany’s pioneering electronic space musician, and his brand new album, Moonlake. Klaus has been exploring the outer reaches of electronic music since 1970, as co-founder of legendary space-rock bands, Ash Ra Temple and Tangerine Dream. Now, some 35 years later, is considered to be the father of, what has come to be known as "21st Century Classical Music." In addition to the new album, there will be a kaleidoscopic selection of music from Klaus’ other major works, as well as unreleased material and rare DVDs.
Friday, November 18th • 8p to 2a
Woolley @Wonder • 128 NE Russell

On Sunday, critic Arthur C. Danto speaks at the Portland Art Museum on Modern Aesthetics, The Gap Between Art and Life. From PAM's website, "Arthur Danto, Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University and art critic for The Nation, has been a major shaper of recent aesthetic theory. Find out how the celebrated author of The Madonna of the Future: Essays in a Pluralistic Art World, After the Death of Art, and the award-winning Encounters and Reflections: Art in the Historical Present looks at art today." Jeff says, "it will sell out."
Sunday, November 20th • 2p • $10
PAM • 1219 SW Park Ave • Tel. 503-226-0973.

On Monday, Justin Oswald talks to Eva Lake on Artstar Radio. Maybe he will release his granndiose plans post-Gallery 500...
Monday, November 21 • 5p
1450 am on your radio dial or kpsu.org

On Tuesday, NAAU offers Mona Hatoum films through Cinema Project. Over the approximate span of twenty years, Hatoum has traveled freely between performance, video, photography, drawing, sculpture and installation. Cinema Project will be screening several of Hatoum’s early video work including Changing Parts, a video inter-cutting imagery from her parents’ house with the documentation of a performance in which the artist was trapped inside a plastic walled container; and Measures of Distance, a video that focuses on Hatoum’s separation and isolation from her family in Beirut. This screening is part of a series of public events surrounding her solo show at the Cooley Memorial Art Gallery at Reed College.
Tuesday, November 22 • 7:30 p
Cinema Project @ NAAU • 922 SE Ankeny Street • Tel. 503.231.8294
