Things to Do

beaverton_mural.jpg

This opportunity comes from former PORTstar Melia Donovan. The Beaverton Arts Commission is seeking "challenging" submissions for their mural project. The city recently voted to exempt public art from the sign code, birthing the mural program and creating a lot of excellent opportunity for interesting public art. You can learn more on the program's website.

(A couple more things after the jump.)

Hear & See

volume.jpg

Portland's art community has truly been stepping up to reexamine and re-imagine our fair city as it grows, and, more importantly, to guide its growth. Continuing the discourse opened by exhibitions like last month's PDXplore and the recently opened Suddenly, PORT's own Jeff Jahn is curating Volume, which opens this weekend at Worksound. Volume, Jahn's first non-institutional warehouse show since 2005, surveys "how Portland's art scene addresses, redirects, abuses and redefines space." Housed in one of the oldest buildings on the eastside, Worksound is especially well suited to the exploration of the development of the city and its once gritty/industrial Central Eastside (Arts) Industrial District. The exhibit features a lecture in late September by Arun Jain, Chief Urban Designer, City of Portland.

Opening reception • 7-9:30pm • August 30
Also open for First Friday
Lecture • 7pm • September 23
Worksound • 820 SE Alder • mojomodou@gmail.com

More, more, MORE happenings this weekend after the jump.

Orbis Viridis Obscurus: Ethan Jackson at NAAU

"Orbis Obscurus" (Detail) Ethan Jackson 2008

Ethan Jackson's transformation of the New American Art Union this month is beautiful and baffling. Walking into the first section of the exhibit, Jackson has transformed the front windows of the gallery space into a giant camera obscura entitled 'Polyopticon VII' which depicts the side of the street opposite the gallery. Despite the advanced nature of the technology of optics in this day and time, this ancient discovery of the nature of lenses never fails to awe an audience. . . (more)

Breakfast w/ Andrew Brandou

Andrew Brandou

Painter Andrew Brandou presents his lush landscapes at Grasshut. Innocent at first glance, his playful animal characters often reveal a mischievous - or downright twisted - twist that adds a wicked delight to his bright colors and careful brushwork. This weekend's opening reception of from the Funk Drawer, Brandou's Grass Hut mini-show, features a breakfast catered by the Screen Door, so RSVP soon to grasshut.corp@gmail.com.

Opening reception (and breakfast!) • 11am - 1pm • August 31

Jeffrey Sarmiento's Translations at Bullseye is a crisp study in the way certain civic architecture's volumes and memory, when associated to space can exude and question imposed power and aesthetics.

Do The Gallery Shuffle

For those who thought it was all gloom and doom when Motel and Small A galleries closed they didn't know that two new galleries run by two of Portland's smartest redheads were opening:

Fontanelle gallery and Fourteen30 (which we mentioned last week) both open in September

Fontanelle is run by Leslie Miller, a former Artforum staffer who has been helping Stephanie Synder out at Reed. We are happy to see that her first show, which opens September 4th features one of Motel's best artists Meg Peterson and one of my personal faves Shanon Schollian. It's in Chambers old space. Chambers is moving across town.

Fourteen30 is opening September 26th in the old Savage/Small A space.

Make links not war

Zaha Hadid's design for a house in Moscow reminds me of her ski jump in Innsbruck in addition to Olympic platform diving. It also seems a tad silly like Robotech in real life.

OpenwidePDX is a new photoblog focusing on Portland art scene openings.

Steve Ditko was in the NYT's book review... nothing could be more deserved both for its praise and damnation.

Peripheral Vision discusses honesty and fakery and their tenuously negotiated relationship to visual media.

Couture: Ethan Jackson

Ethan Jackson, from "Polyopticon VI"

NAAU's next Couture exhibition opens this week. With Orbis Viridus Obscurus, photographer Ethan Jackson will convert the entire gallery space into a "living camera obscura." The project is a continuation of his exploration of the camera obscura in Polyopticon VI, where he used mirrors, lenses, and "baffles" to distort and convert space in an abandoned ranch dwelling in Wyoming. Jackson defines the camera obscura as a "participational optics... that defines a conceptual space that is difficult to tackle directly."

Eadweard Muybridge and The Matrix


EMM_plate700-1887.jpg
Eadweard Muybridge Animal Locomotion, Plate 700, 1887
Collotype



Eadweard Muybridge understood that a single photograph was of little use when you are trying to understand the movement of an subject. Movement is inherently a function of moving through time and space. Muybridge's genius was that the even though a single photograph could only reveal a frozen moment in the movement of an object, a series of photographs are able to reveal a much more accurate description of movement. Even more important was that when the photographs were taken sequentially so the movement of the object can be observed changing frame by frame. I was surprised at the difficulty of thinking about some of the implications of Muybridge's experiments. You can see all of this for yourself if you look at the excellent show of Edward Muybridge collotypes at Charles A. Hartman Fine Art until August 30, 2008.

I feel like working through the spatial or temporal aspects of Muybridge's work and photography in general is like trying to understand a Zen Koan. It all sounds so simple on the surface. The shutter speed should be about time and the camera lens should be about recording the space or the field of view in front of the camera. The more I work through Muybridge's work, the more I wonder if the exact opposite is a more accurate description of what is happening. We usually associate time with the hands of a clock, no space just the continuous movement of experience counted off second by second. But couldn't time also be measured by the amount of spatial information that we are able to receive from a photo or a given environment? Ironically, this would imply that the clearer the spatial information is in a photograph, the more time and less space there is. Could the shutter speed be recording more space to be exposed on to the negative the longer the shutter remains open? More...

Artist Talks at Russo

kosm08arborseriesgroup2.jpg
Michihiro Kosuge, "Arbor Series Sculpture"

Michihiro Kosuge and Gina Wilson are speaking this weekend on their current exhibitions at Laura Russo. Kosuge's Recent Sculpture explores "the relationship between man and nature seen in an influence by both architectural form and the natural environment." Featured works include The Arbor Series, towering columnal forms that are "solemn and spiritual." Wilson's New Paintings are playful abstractions of the human figure, "offbeat and distinctive... soft and intimate."

Artists' talk • 11am • August 16

Art and Architecture: An Interview with Brad Cloepfil Part I


bci1_AWA-Maryhill-Overlook.jpg
Allied Works Architecture

Photo by Sally Schoolmaster



Brad Cloepfil is the principal of Allied Works Architecture in Portland, Oregon. Allied Works is a nationally recognized architecture firm that has recently completed projects like the extension to the Seattle Art Museum, the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis and is currently finishing the Museum of Art & Design at 2 Columbus Circle in New York. PORT recently sat down with him to ask about the impact artists have had on his work.

How did your early experience with art feedback into your own creative process?

When I was younger, I tended to be influenced by the raw experience of the work itself. At first, I wasn't even aware of who created a work, whether it was Richard Serra or Robert Irwin, it was the experience of the work itself that was important. The experience makes you ask yourself about the spatial quality of that type of work and about the ideas that those artists are exploring. It just resonates with you. I wasn't seeing anything comparable in buildings. It just seems like those guys understood more about the intentions of the 19th and 20th century architecture than the architects did. They had clarity of thought and a practice that was built on the exploration of material that became very important to me. The singular act of focus to create a work of art was really impressive. I saw Richard Serra's Circuit at MoMA and it is just four pieces of steel propped up in the corners of the room. The physical presence and the mass of the steel and its ability to radiate space into the small gallery was for me a very architectural experience that I could relate to much easier than the so-called "architecture" that was being produced at that time. The experience is about the material and the way that the material is made. It was also easier to learn from the artists because their work is so pure. By that I mean, the work that I was interested in was focused on the exploration of only one or two ideas.

Public Art, Private Art

psu_urbancenterplaza.jpg
PSU's Urban Center Plaza

Via the Oregon Arts Commission: PSU is seeking artists to design public work for a "180,000 square foot multiuse facility at PSU’s Urban Center Plaza." The art selection committee is particularly interested in proposals that "use the student or other local population as subject matter, or that provide opportunities for student interaction or gathering." There is a $325K budget that may be divided. The application deadline is September 17, and more information can be found right here.


Launch Pad Gallery is hosting their sixth open call group show. This show's theme is Dreams: "This October, in the liminal month between summer and fall, Launch Pad Gallery invites you to delve deep into the private world of your mind..." Open call means non-juried, with space for one 2D work, max 2'x2', from up to 100 artists. The deadline is September 9. More details and submission info can be found here.


And, finally, Art on Alberta, organizers of Last Thursday and other major NE arts events, are trying to build an online network for communication between vendors and artists. This is especially important in light of their recent meetings with the city regarding the planning and organization of Last Thursday. If you're a vendor, please contact vendors@artonalberta.org, and if you're interested in volunteering, you can get more info here.

Jacqueline Ehlis at NAAU (Abstraction Today, an anatomy)

AfterHoursRedEhlis_above.jpg
After Hours Red (The Red Corner), [view from above]

Since it has opened Jacqueline Ehlis' Serenade at NAAU has become one of, if not the most demanding and discussed exhibition I've experienced in my 9.5 years in Portland. Its avowed goal is simply to "operate within the historically loaded perimeter of painting," but it's not the spectacle many expected. Instead, it presents itself without fanfare like a monk in a monastery; it is quiet, task driven, ascetic, up front and unpretentious. It carries itself around with a lot of discipline and deep seated routine that tells the viewer that this isn't just an art exhibition but a kind of anatomical treatise on monochrome geometric abstraction and minimalism's connection to surface and material.

Now in its last weekend with positive reviews from every outlet in town and a nonstop sustained level of tongue wagging it's time for a deep look...(more)

Friday News

The big review is coming saturday morning (what a beast to write... it's basically a checkup on the state of abstract art). Till then:

The Guardian has a slideshow of Richard Serra's latest exhibition in London.

David Cohen discusses the Cy Twombly Retrospective, also in London.

Douglas McLennan has a great article on why newspapers are failing.

Tyler reported that Richard Diebenkorn (who was born in Portland but moved at age 2) will finally have an Ocean Park series retrospective.

New Gallery news: Jeanine Jablonski (who has been working for Elizabeth Leach and created GLARE quarterly) is opening a new gallery fourteen30 in the old Small A/Savage space (watch this site). First show in September will feature the work of Los Angeles based artist, Devon Oder, Breaking Light. Besides national, local and international artists (is there a difference anymore?) she will focus on art publications.

First Thursday Picks August 2008

Bobby Grossman, "Andy Warhol: Cornflakes," 1978

Traveling exhibition Bande à part (Band of Outsiders) is coming to Augen Gallery NW this month. A reference to the 1964 film by Jean-Luc Godard, the show is a collection of photographs from the New York underground scene in the 60's, 70's, & 80's. It is an "inside" look at the self-proclaimed "outsiders," including photography by Billy Name, Danny Fields, Leee Black Childers, Anton Perich, Roberta Bayley, Godlis, Marcia Resnick, and Bobby Grossman. This show is timed nicely with the Famous Faces exhibition at the Maryhill Museum.

Must Read and OPB

Peter Schjeldahl's latest piece is a Must Read. It's one of those rare occasions where the critic's analysis of the show is more worth while and telling than the exhibition itself. The long and short of it is, the second artists start making gestures at becoming very serious again we suddenly expect the work to transcend all of the museum blockbusters and art fairs that have lowered the level of expectations for art during the past decade. Finally, PS has taken on younger artists instead of his typically brilliant laurel wreaths for the likes of Bruce Nauman and Ed Ruscha. We know those guys are good, what we want now is a new crop with a similar level of rigor and achievement.

On a more regional level (but not strictly so), I'll be on Oregon Public Broadcasting's Think Out Loud tomorrow at 9:00 AM with curator Jennifer Gately, Dan Attoe and Richard Speer to discuss the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards and their impact on the regional art scene (though artists like Attoe have pretty bitch'n international careers already so it opens some complicated and impossible to categorize discussions of regionalism in an internationally decentralized art world).

Last Chance Reviews

Portland doesn't shut down its scene with a bunch of perfunctory Summer group shows like a lot of cities. This July was no exception with a wonderful pile of more serious shows, many of which come down this weekend. I'll also have a very long and involved review for one show up later this weekend. Till then here are a few waning shows that deserve some more attention:

EgyptianOneEighty.jpg
Donald Morgan's Egyptian One Eighty at Rock's Box

Donald Morgan's Hunters and Collectors at Rock's Box continues what has become the strongest altspace exhibition series in Portland since the Haze Gallery of 2004. The show itself is filled with tons of allegorical constructions that reference everything from Egyptian funerary accoutrements to the show's eponymous piece consisting of a zebra hide and mid century sportsmen's hats. It's all about the artist's rather catholic and somewhat syncretic tastes which for me felt like watching the discovery channel for an afternoon (not bad if the weather weren't so nice). Maybe it's not the best show Rock's Box has done recently as it feels a tad slick and referentially impressive for the sake of being academically impressive but still it's well done. Show ends Sunday August 3rd.


UselessSusceptableIdeology.jpg
Owen's useless, incorruptible, secret at Reed College

Melody Owen's show at Elizabeth Leach was all over the place, probably because the artist had literally been in Iceland, Paris and Quebec. I found her collages and sculptures to be her strongest suit… but it was her Caseworks show at Reed College's Hauser Library titled useless, incorruptible, secret that was the... (more)
