Even though Fall hasn't officially started we are already well into the beginning of the season with far too much to choose from. Here are two moving premiers to consider this weekend.
So perhaps you need something to renew your faith in art and the murky process of collecting? Here is the one and it is only for this weekend. At the Northwest Film Center is the Portland premier of Herb and Dorothy 50 x 50
by Director Megumi Sasaki. In case you haven't been tracking it, Herb and Dorothy Vogel became some of the world's greatest art collectors on a small time budget. Then they gave 50 works to 50 museums in all 50 states. You can see most of the works given to the Portland Art Museum here
. As examples of the best that collecting art can achieve, the Vogel's are legendary

is the latest collaboration by Marne Lucas and Jacob Pander, originally famous for the cult classic The Operation
"Merging our interests in surveillance technology, we are developing a multi-channel video installation filmed with heat-sensitive Thermal Imaging (IR) systems. By illuminating the actual heat of nature, culture, and the body by tracking the glowing heat/energy signatures of objects and people at terrestrial temperatures, we provide a new way of perceiving the Self."
