May 13 - July 30 Open Sesame

It's no secret I'm a fan of video art. In my world the work divides into documentation of performance, moving painting, conceptual work, recreation of something existing in the world, a play on the display medium and pop culture sampling. Pop culture sampling, I can do without that.

Tonight is the first day of a show of video art, primarily non-Portlanders. It is a set of wall displays which will run throughout the show and screenings - specific artists, specific days.

There is a full list at At The Lumber Room 419 SW 9th, above Liz Leach Map Fridays and Saturdays 5PM-8 Free
