Book Launch: Nan Curtis’ The Rekindling
Nan Curtis, Chair of Studio Arts at PNCA, releases a catalogue for her project The Rekindling with a reception Thursday, April 27 from 6-8:30pm at Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, 415 SW 10th.
This catalogue documents a project that grew from an exhibition Curtis did at NINE Gallery in 2011. She received 16 commissions that took her more than four years to complete, and this book is the one place they are all housed together. Stephanie Snyder, John and Anne Hauberg Curator and Director, Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery at Reed College wrote an essay for the book which was designed and produced by Container Corps.
Curtis will speak at 6:30, and Stephanie Snyder will read from her essay. There will be some of the commissioned pieces on display, and the book will be for sale.
