January 15 Modulate This, The Enclave Versus the Dismal Science

On the Ground: Mercy Corps and the Democratic Republic of Congo is a talk by the Mercy Corps country director for Congo, Mark Dwyer. Mercy Corps has been working in the area where Irish artist Richard Mosse made his video work, The Enclave. The Enclave was first shown in the 2014 Venice Biennale and is showing at the Portland Art Museum until April. The Enclave is a do not miss work, of which we have written. At the Portland Art Museum 1219 SW Park Members free; non-members $15, seniors, students $12 7PM

Economics is called the dismal science. Perhaps because it is far from a science, and that it forgot the Pin Factory while placing all hope on the Invisible Hand. (see this for a decode)

David Warsh is a writer on economics. He speaks this evening about his book Knowledge and the Wealth of Nations: The Discovery of New Growth Theory. It is a history of the origin of current economic thinking in the 1700's to today

It is a heady Linus Pauling Memorial Lecture. At the First Congregational Church 1126 SW Park 7PM $35

Central~Lattice Tool Array becomes an instrument this evening with a performance in the Resonant Entity Modulator series by MSHR.
