View a special one-night screening, High Five! : 3 videos about gesture, featuring
contemporary art’s Douglas
organized by PICA’s Visual Art Program Director, Kristan Kennedy.
“Shown in a loop and including short interviews with Hans Ulrich Obrist
these works focus the traveling eye on the gestures of the hand. Hands that greet,
prop up, push down, flip off and hold up elements of fragmented stories.”
Videos have been selected from the project "Point
of View- An Anthology of the Moving Image
" commissioned by the New Museum
of Contemporary Art.
A portion of all food and drink sales on this special night will benefit PICA’s

artist living and working in Houston, Texas. He is a graduate of Oberlin College.
His artistic practice is the facilitation of collaborative investigations, as
well as interactive installations that attempt to uncover shared human values
and inspire dynamic readings of our surroundings. By focusing on collaboration
and interaction, he works to explore the unknown in order to create new discussions,
discover new methods of communication, and propose new expectations of human potential.
Besides a variety of installation projects, he is a founder of the Oberlin Big
Parade, Workshop Houston, and the Shrimp Boat Project.”
Ironically the Contemporary Art Council at the museum showed these same 3 videos at our holiday party (plus a bunch of others). I liked the Douglas Gordon one, which made plenty of people uncomfortable. Ill be curious to see how another Portland audeince reacts to these.
