Setareh Shahbazi, "Secret Affinities"
PICA and the PSU Monday night lecture series present a talk by influential curator Regine Basha, who has worked for the past 15 years in Montreal, New York, and Austin. Her career has primarily focused on "realizing context-specific situations for the production of new work," including her work in the 90s with artist collectives Mayday Productions and the Brewster Project. Her "recent and upcoming exhibitions include an exhibition about listening with Steve Roden and Stephen Vitiello (Lora Reynolds Gallery), an exhibition with Berlin-based Setareh Shahbazi (Contemporary Arts Forum, Santa Barbara [see above]), and a town-wide sound sculpture project in Marfa, Texas called The Marfa Sessions (Ballroom Marfa)."

I'm confused, I thought the lecture series was a Portland State University thing, not a PICA thing. But my friend told me it was PICA, and it looks like from this post it is...? Is it PICA or PSU?
The answer is....all of the above!
One of the most confusing things about Portland is how many institutions collaborate, each donating resources like space, connections, cash and promotional support. Obviously this is a double edged sword since it allows the underfunded scene to operate... but it also leads to institutional identity issues. In fact the PSU MFA Monday Night Lecture Series is supported in part by PICA, Reed College, PNCA, Lewis and Clark College, and PSU's Department of International Studies and Ben Rosenberg Studio.
I'm certain if you gave them $5000 they would list you as a sponsor too.
