Portland, OR—March 27, 2017— The Center for Contemporary Art & Culture at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) is pleased to present Costumes, Reverence, and Forms, an exchange exhibition co-organized with the artist-run, Philadelphia-based Vox Populi. Costumes, Reverence, and Forms is the culmination of a year’s worth of curatorial exchange work involving two institutions and six curators. Together the team reviewed 180 artist’s websites, conducted 22 studio visits, and logged countless hours of communication and thought. In the end, the exhibition brings eight artists from two river cities together to show their work alongside each other in two exhibitions: one in Portland and the other in Philadelphia. This mixer has broadened each institutions’ knowledge of the other’s city and artists and fostered new relationships. The exhibition itself serves as a slice rather than a survey, a small fragment of or view into the art scenes of these two cities.
