Timeshare at the Everett Station Lofts.
Last night I noticed that the Everett Station Lofts (which houses 13+ gallery spaces and has made significant contributions to the Portland art scene) might be taking an upswing with Timeshare Gallery after a few years of disappointing efforts. Sure, Half/Dozen leaving was a blow to the lofts but those spaces traditionally go through high and low tides and 2 years is a long time for any gallery at the ESL to stay open. Historically, Timeshare's unit, #114 has spawned some of Portland's all time best alt-spaces like Nil, Tractor and Field. Breezeblock and now Timeshare
give me hope. A few other galleries on NW 6th seemed promising too... look sharp, we are watching.
The Portland Japanese Garden receives its largest gift ever
putting it 1/3rd of the way to its 3 million dollar expansion goal, endowing a curator (programming is key). The expansion will be designed by one of the planet's very best architects, Kengo Kuma
. It will be his first US project.
AFC reports that the Utah Art Center is facing eviction/censorship
... I went to grad school in Utah (my god mother lives in Park City too) and yeah things like this happen all of the time in that state. Give the UAC a break... the world is starting to pay attention, perhaps that is the problem?
It has been a somewhat quiet week on the MOCA front with a few former board members speaking out on Facebook but MOCA Mobilization reached 1500 signatures on its petition for restocking the curatorial program
, which was gutted at the end of June.
Tyler Green has been following the situation at the Corcoran
, with the latest development being the DC DA looking at some of the legal ramifications of trying to move from the nation's capital to the suburbs.
