April 16 Artists Speak Site Specificity and the Biennial

The opportunity to create room filling installations is precious and rare, unless you are the Dia Foundation which has maintained an indoor artwork for 32 years. Mostly they are short lived architectures of creativity and stunning impracticality. The Portland Biennial has provided that opportunity and a few of the artists speak about their large scale works. Artists Damien Gilley, Jenene Nagy and the Oregon Painting Society, who each have large works in the Templeton Building, speak about it on site. Part of In the Templeton Building, 230 East Burnside, enter on SE 3rd, by the skate park. 7PM Free
