Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) welcomes internationally-recognized artists and curators to Portland for its 2012-13 exhibition series which has been supported by a $40,000 grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. This is the College’s first grant from this prestigious national foundation. With exhibitions from New York’s Drawing Center, Chicago’s Threewalls, the Critical Art Ensemble, and a group show in honor of the 100th birthday of John Cage, the series includes painting, drawing, object, and installation topped off with thought-provoking public programs.
This challenging exhibition series—on view in PNCA’s Feldman Gallery and other Project Spaces from February 2012 through May 2013—embodies the discursive nature of artistic practice, and provides clear, compelling examples of the various strategies employed in the conception and production of work. Each exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with scholarly essays and other information about the artist and work.
