February 6 Eastside Openings

Building construction is serious and costly business. It is visually rich and understandable on inspection. So it's a ripe situation to make art of.

Tori Abernathy stages a construction intervention in HQHQ Project Space including activist discussions February 24th-26th by the Portland Renters' Assembly.

Tonight and throughout the month the artist injects a tactic of play and the female into the HQHQ construction site in an intervention Make Yourself At Home.

At HQHQ Project Space 232 SE Oak St #108 6PM-9 Free
