January 22 July Show

ShowPDX is a long running furniture design show descended from Table, Lamp and Chair. We like those crafts in the NW! Christopher Douglas, Joe Futschik, Jennifer Jako, Andi Kovel, and Dave Laubenthal discuss the state of and challenges around craft in Portland. The growth of Portland design, the role of women, and balancing installation work with standalone pieces are some of the topics they have announced they will address. At the PNCA Museum of Contemporary Craft 724 NW Davis 6:30PM-8 Free

Miranda July appears at Powell's on Burnside at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 22.

A long time ago, Miranda July was a Portland performance artist. At its core her work is story telling. She spent over a year in her studio in the Fez building on Burnside downstairs from the ballet studio writing what was to become her film.

Big Miss Moviola, media performances, film acting, writing, directing, social practice art, interactive art websites, a mobile app.

Speed up to now. She reads from her first novel First Bad Man tonight. Should be good.

Some of the audience are meeting up at the Ace before. At Powell's 3rd floor. 10th and W Burnside 7:30PM Free
