The Portland Art Museum is revamping its Biennial program and it looks like
it will expand beyond Oregon. As luck would have it I'm in Vancouver BC right
now and one thing is for certain, no Northwest Biennial could be taken seriously
without inviting them too (Portland and Vancouver have the two most distinctive
and bustling scenes but Seattle has something to offer too).
Ill have details on this development Monday but I've
already brought up the need to make the Oregon Biennial more relevant and influential here
... and since the Pacific Northwest is an international zone (Cascadia) with some impressive
art, this just makes sense. Will it be some sort of fawning craft-driven art
glass filled yard sale type show or something more focused, relevant and contemporary? Ill
let you know on Monday when PAM gives details.
