Craft Conversation: David Eckard and Anne Marie Oliver

Don’t miss an exciting opportunity to discuss the dynamic work included in the Museum of Contemporary Craft’s exhibit Call + Response with PNCA Faculty David Eckard and Anne Marie Oliver, 1 p.m. Saturday, September 26 at the Museum, 724 N.W. Davis St.

Anne Marie Oliver, Assistant Professor of Intermedia and contemporary art theory, Pacific Northwest College of Art, and David Eckard, Chair of the Sculpture Department and Instructor in Foundation and Intermedia departments, Pacific Northwest College of Art will discuss the collaborative process they engaged in for Call + Response.

Drawing on the musical concept of “call and response,” this project provides a rare platform for artists and art historians to engage with each with other in vibrant conversation. A multi-layered exhibition, Call + Response features diverse works by eight pairs of art and art history faculty members from colleges and universities who have taught in Oregon for roughly ten years or less.

Through multimedia content, contextual writing, the presentation of studio works and public programs, this intriguing project celebrates and provokes the recent influx of ideas brought to Oregon by these faculty members – who are breaking ground within their fields nationally and internationally. In effect, Call + Response considers what role these individuals, and their institutions, play within the state’s shifting creative landscape.
