1. I’m back in Portland after 10 mind-numbing days of meditating. Hurrah!

2. Dara Greenwald and Josh Macphee have an incredible exhibition of activist art at PNCA (pictured above) that opens tonight, Feb. 4th. I had a chance to preview it; it’s mind blowing! The show is sprawling, staggering and looks something like a student occupation of the commons. Highly recommend.

3. Excited to check out Museum of Contemporary Craft’s Gestures of Resistance tonight. The exhibition “examines work by contemporary artists who focus on craft actions and create works that use craft to agitate for change”. It should be interesting to see how the show evolves over the course of its run, as the Museum will host seven artist residencies between now and June.

3. I’m giving a short presentation on a new T-shirt project this Sunday, Feb 7th @ Research Club. The event meets @ the Tribute Gallery (328 NW Broadway #117) at 1PM. The brunch intends “to create a context where active and interesting people can meet each other and talk about what they’re doing while having a little something to eat.” More on the T-shirt project in a bit…

4. Missed Ivy Lin’s film on the first Chinese burial ground and her search for missing remains of Chinese Laborers? There’s another one happening next Tuesday, Feb. 9th at UO White Stag Building (70  NW Couch St). 5:30PM reception, 6:00PM screening.
