Weekend Wanderer

It is one Very Busy weekend in Portland's art scene since Saturday is the last day for TBA visual art shows, Nationale has a new space and Surplus Space is doing a performance night. Here are my picks:

streamroomBW_falsefront_sm.jpg

Stream Room by Deep White Sound at FalseFront sounds a lot like attending numerous trance raves at the same time with its cacaphonous presentation of multiple sound art pieces at the same time. Everything is streamed to multiple handmade streaming devices. Curated and produced for deepwhitesound by DB Amorin with design and visuals by Dana Paresa + programming and consultation by Matt McVickar.

Stream Room | October 11 - November 2
Opening Reception: October 11 6-9PM
FalseFront
4518 NE 32nd Avenue

Laura Vandenburgh

Technically the location is far south of Portland in Eugene/Springfield but Ditch Projects Thick Drawings by Laura Vandenburgh gives us an opportunity to check out an enormous "floor to wall" version of her signature drawings fraught with fragility and precision. With so many performances going on lately it is nice to see a major installation effort.

Thick Drawings | October 11 - November 2
Opening Reception: October 11, 6-9 PM
Ditch Projects
303 S. 5th Avenue #165
Springfield OR 97477

Forgive the self promotion but Anthropometry (curated by yours truly) is a very strong show with some young Portland artists making a big splash. Focused on artists who use design and science in an applied way to perpetrate contemporary art, Anthropometry features newly minted Portlanders; Flynn Casey, Matthew Leavitt and veteran Seattle artist Ephraim Russell. It is a major theme in contemporary art these days and felt it was time to explore it locally. Overall, it is nice to introduce artists to one another and to see the new blood step up and distinguish itself. At reception Leavitt will activate Desert Mandala Machine and install a small but fantastic additional work, Contrivance.

Anthropometry | October 1 - 31
Artist Talk & Reception: October 11 | 3:30 - 4:30PM
Kathrin Cawein Gallery
Pacific University
2043 College Way, Forest Grove, OR 97116
