We currently have 3 major interviews, two essays, reviews and my historical piece on Bruce Guenther in the works (all coming soon) till then here are a few links:
A young curator's button shop in NYC
is just another example of the hybrid gallery model that has become popular in many places, including Portland.
Big architecture news in Portland... the James Beard Public Market will be designed by Snohetta
. With Kengo Kuma doing the Japanese Garden
and PNCA set to open the 511 building by Brad Cloepfil
architecture in Portland is getting increasingly serious. Any institution seeking to expand in the next 10 years has a very high bar to meet these days in Portland.
World's biggest art collector dies at a rather young age of natural causes
An interesting article on Zumthor's blob (or not) design for LACMA. Clearly MoMA made mistakes though I can't agree with the article's assertion that the stakes are somehow higher in LA... they just aren't. Still, the idea that a new building should put the viewing experience above all else is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Somehow I missed my friend Liz Obert's article in Slate
(my excuse was I was traveling). Always nice to see an article on Portland that isn't some quirk-hype fluff piece. Portland is a busy cauldron of humanist ideals and Liz is stirring the pot. She will have an exhibition at Linfield soon.
