March 5 Edit Ritual Identity

The PDX Art and Feminism Wikipedia Edit Party is a fun thing you can do today. Wikipedia is crowd sourced, and the crowd can be you! A lot of yous will be sitting down all day, or drop in and out as you like, to work on improving Wikipedia articles on art, artists and feminism. You can find out all the things at At Yu Contemporary Art 900 SE 10th 10AM-5PM Free

Lucien Shapiro is an Oakland artist. He constructs costumes and ritual objects from consumer waste. Then he performs with them live and on video as his own personal voodoo.
