OPS goes to London to celebrate the Tate's 10th Anniversary

Here is news of an exciting development for the Oregon Painting Society, which got PORT's attention in 2008. Then they brought it all together OPS hit it out of the park in one of 2009's best shows. Now they are going to Tate Modern's immense Turbine Hall. Which is to say, game on and well done, told yah they were onto something (despite being a bit overexposed in Portland recently). This is one dynamic art scene.

According to the press release "OPS have been invited by NYC based curator Cecilia Alemani to participate in No Soul for Sale: A Festival of Independents as part of the museum’s 10th anniversary celebration. The three-day festival of art collectives and innovative arts organizations will draw 50 participants from around the globe including Portland’s very own OPS. The group will create an interactive installation on the floor of the Tate’s Turbine Hall and will present a new performance on the hall’s main stage. The festival is expected to draw 50,000 visitors."

No Soul for Sale: A Festival of Independents will take place May 14th-16th, 2010
