Interview with Alison Saar

Alison Saar is a well known and sometimes controversial sculptor who recently completed a commission at Lewis and Clark College campus called York: Terra Incognita. She also has a career spanning exhibition titled,Bound For Glory, at the nearby Hoffman Gallery and runs through December 12th. To discuss her work, PORT sent Gabe Flores to talk with Saar and learn more about how she mixes life, art and history.

Steve Martin a has a new book about the art world... I hope it stays a book and doesn't become a movie. But it will.

Just when I was thinking that Zaha Hadid had lost her magic touch found in earlier projects like the Strasbourg Car Park, her Stone Towers project looks awfully good.

I like festivals, especially when they are focused, and this bucolic outdoor installation art festival in Russian looks interesting.

Van Gogh in Auvers, His Last Days

Auvers_Van_Gogh.jpg
Published by The Monacelli Press

We are a culture obsessed with the secrets that will demystify genius. Convinced of its inherent oddity, we see its anomaly and resulting masterpieces as too fantastic to originate from a normal life. The fame that follows genius and its resulting celebritydom enchant us even more, sending our level of star-struck into the lull of proper swoon. The common assumption intrinsic to genius seems to be...

Artemisia Gentileschi | Swamp Light

gentileschi-holofernes.jpg
Artemisia Gentileschi, "Judith Slaying Holofernes," 1614-20

Reed College and others present An Afternoon with Artemisia Gentileschi: Film and Conversation. "The work of Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1654) was shaped by her training in her father's studio and her role as a woman painter in a male-dominated art world. Please join us for an afternoon dedicated to Artemisia, featuring a screening of the new documentary A Woman Like That with filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod, and a special presentation by Gentileschi specialist Jesse Locker, Assistant Professor, Renaissance & Baroque Art History, Portland State University." Free and open to the public.

Film screening & conversation • 1pm • November 20
Hosted by PAM • 1219 SW Park • Whitsell Auditorium


smith-ghostlightisswampgas.jpg
Robert Smith

In a completely different vein: Ditch Projects presents Robert Smith's Swamp Gas Is Ghost Light. "In his current exhibition of video, drawings, and sculpture, Smith uses torqued mirrors and lenses to drawl the haunted landscapes of cypress swamps and tobacco fields out into rhythmic incantations. The supernatural event becomes an occasion for concrete rupture. Molded in the tradition of a banishment ritual, these works both invoke and diffuse the mystified auras of Southern identity politics as specters borne of their specific material conditions, a fermenting miasma of Old South tradition and mystical symbolic languages."

Opening reception • 7-10pm • November 20
Ditch Projects • 303 S. 5th AVE #190, Springfield, OR

Off_A_Log.jpg
as easy as falling off a log (installation view) photo: Jeff Jahn

In 1957 the State of Oregon outlawed the use of splash dams on Oregon waterways. Splash dams were built on rivers and creeks as a way to back up water in a sufficient volume to propel logged trees downstream. The flood caused by the sudden gush of water, plus the massive number of logs, scoured the waterways down to the bedrock, thereby making those streams inhospitable to the spawning salmon that required gravel beds (redds) to lay and fertilize eggs. Only after a series of lawsuits by anglers and environmentalists was the practice terminated nationwide.

Often the rush of logs downstream would cause logjams... (more)

Museums: Object Focus + Celentano

SMS-MoCC.jpg
S.M.S. (Shit Must Stop), New York City, A Letter Edged in Black Press, 1968, photo by Orin Zyvan

The Museum of Contemporary Craft presents Object Focus: The Book, co-curated by Namita Gupta Wiggers and Reed College's Geraldine Ondrizek in collaboration with OCAC's Barbara Tetenbaum. "The artist's book is an object that extends work beyond the boundaries of a gallery setting. Through selections from the significant 20th century modern and contemporary artists' books in Reed College's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the book as an object which defies the boundaries between art, craft and design, and moves along a spectrum from a recognizable to a deconstructed form."

Exhibition • November 18, 2010 - February 16, 2011
Craft conversation • 2-3pm • December 4, 2010
Museum of Contemporary Craft • 724 NW Davis • 503.223.2654


Celentano-DeltaBW.jpg
Francis Celentano, "Delta Black and White," 1971

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University presents Form and Color, a retrospective of Francis Celentano. "Celentano is a highly regarded Seattle painter and professor emeritus from the University of Washington who explores issues of color, shape, form and structure in abstract, geometric works...Back in New York, Celentano continued to paint in an abstract expressionist style but gradually embraced the tenets of Op art, a movement that emerged in the 1960s and that makes use of optical illusions." Educators: There will be a workshop on November 30 for teachers who want to bring their students to learn about Celentano. Read the news release for more info.

Film + Installation: Tomonari Nishikawa

Tomonari Nishikawa, film still

Cinema Project presents Japanese filmmaker and installation artist Tomonari Nishikawa's Everyday Exercise. "Nishikawa's approach may seem scientific - a search for organic patterns, a critical examination through single-framing techniques, multiple lenses, or dual projection - and yet the resulting images are more playful and lyrical...Extending from the screen, Nishikawa also creates installation pieces, often using pinhole cameras as his starting point to bring attention to spatial arrangements." The presentation will be a 3-day event held at Disjecta, including a screening of Nishikawa's films, an artist lecture, and the opening of his newest installation, Yamanote Loop, which "explores everyday views around one of Japan's busiest railway lines coming full circle."

Turner Prize and CNAA's

Art21 has a nice summary judgment of this year's Turner Prize candidates. Im definitely for Otilith Group too (I'm a sucker for extra geeky snappy-looking shows), which means they probably won't win.

As we have seen with the Contemporary Northwest Art Awards these types of show rarely pick the strongest artist in that iteration's show... it's kind of an institutional hallmark to pick something blander... the bigger the institution the less willing they are to make consequential decisions about taste (instead they follow). BTW The CNAA's are underway again and will take place in June 2011. Will they prove consequential like the Turner Prize was in the 90's (less so now but still major) or just another navel gazing exercise in things we already know about the region? The last one wasn't bad but it wasn't terribly influential either and didn't really pose a challenge to the NW identity. Also, there wont be an outside curator this time to winnow down the nominees like last time, just a panel of PAM's photography Northwest and contemporary curators and the director... yes a panel.

Only time will tell if they need to remind everyone that... (more)

Hold

heidischwegler-hold.jpg
Heidi Schwegler

Disjecta presents HOLD, an installation of sculpture, audio and projection by Heidi Schwegler. Together, the elements of the project "speak of a moment of anguish. In conventional warfare two opponents confront one another and inflict damage until one side is defeated. Personal struggle, however, is a battle in which the enemy is not external; the enemy is the self. Situated in the mind, it manifests physically within the body and is particularly insidious; it is unnecessary and the opponent does not exist. Outside the mind and body, inner angst is mostly unseen."

students + photographers

Orlo, a local environmental arts nonprofit, is throwing itself an 18th birthday party, and asking Portland's student artists to participate. Accepted artwork will be exhibited during the event and entered into a silent auction. Artists get a free ticket + 1 and 20% of sales proceeds. (For what it's worth: These sorts of deals are terrible for established artists, and we here at PORT usually skip 'em. But for student artists, it's not such a bad way to get yourself out there.) Submissions should loosely address the theme "Food and Landscape." Work is due by December 2, and you should contact jess_fogel@hotmail.com for details because the call for artists isn't on their website.


The Texas Photographic Society is hosting its third photographic portfolio competition juried by Chris Bennett, director of Newspace. Two portfolios will be featured, one by an emerging photographer and one by a mid-career photographer. Entrants must be current members of TPS. The deadline is December 13, and you can learn more on their website.

Clark College's Archer Gallery presents Magnitudes and Increments, an exhibition by Peter Happel Christian and Dan Gilsdorf. "Both artists interact with the world by measuring, reducing, and recording it through a range of media. The processes vary for the artists, but both Gilsdorf and Happel Christian engage in systematic methods of artmaking in order to gain understanding of what is more true than real, more poignant than scientific."

With all of its changes in the past 10 years it's no surprise that Portland's art scene is particularly interested in architecture, construction and the design of space.

Each 15 minute lecture by Salvatore Reda, Laura Hughes, myself, Victor Maldonado, Randy Rapaport, Damien Gilley should present a variety of approaches and philosophies at work in the city before a concluding discussion about the ramifications of these approaches.

Interlocution: an interview with Robert Storr

robert-storr-portrait2.jpg
Robert Storr is one of today's most eminent curators as well as an artist and arguably a philosopher. Currently he is dean of the Yale School of Art. He was the artistic director of the 2007 Venice Biennale and Curator of the Department of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA for over a decade. I had the opportunity to listen to him lecture this April at the Donald Judd conference "Invenit non fecit." I spoke with him after the conference and he agreed to this interview.

Q. Kirk Varnedoe has had a huge influence on many, how has his example influenced you and your work?

A. Those most influenced by Kirk were his students, and beyond that people who worked under his direct supervision on the various exhibitions he organized. Frequently his assistants were... (more)

YU contemporary art center goes public

YU_1_sm.jpg
The Old Yale Union (YU) Laundry building in a bid to be the serious contemporary art center Portland has been wanting.

The unveiling of the YU contemporary art center on November 2 in Portland felt both energizing and overly familiar. On the positive side an LLC holding company (under control of founders Curtis Knapp and Aaron Flint Jamison) already owns the building and seeks to transfer ownership of the former Yale Union Laundry building to YU (acronym for Yale Union) a 501(c)3 non profit arts institution. Located in the inner SE industrial district YU is in an ideal location. The team has already donated and carried out a feasibility study by BOORA, which requires 5-7,000,000 for build out and seismic upgrades (though 10-$20,000,000 seems much more prudent for endowing the programs). Yu already has some finished renovations like the impressive kitchen for major events.
