Maybe you were or are one of those students who always took the opportunity to learn a little more and get a few extra points... if so these events are for you:
Red at PCS
So, you haven't overdosed on Rothko yet with the retrospective and are very interested in how his time growing up in Portland might have effected him? Tonight at 7:00PM at Mcmenamins Kennedy School for "Portland and the Art of Mark Rothko
" join PORT's own Arcy Douglass (who penned this important historical look at Rothko and Portland
) in conversation with Daniel Benzali the actor portraying Rothko in the fictional historization that is the play Red now running at PCS
. Arcy is very aware of Rothko's well documented disdain for entertaining the wealthy and anything that wasn't 100% serious so this should be an interesting and difficult dance. (P.S. PAM's Chief Curator Bruce Guenther and I will be on OPB's Think Out Loud
radio show discussing Rothko on Wednesday at 9:00 AM).
For February 28th and 29th at 7:00PM check out, Is It My Body: Conversions, Transgression, and Representations
. The series was curated in response to the current exhibition BRUCE NAUMAN: BASEMENTS
on view at the Cooley Gallery. The program includes work by Vito Acconci, Denise Marika, Ursula Hodel, Eleanor Antin in addition to early video by Nauman. It's in the Pearl at 937 NW Glisan and it's free.
