Sky Exchange II | Portland Textile Month

October 19 - November 16

Against a clouded grid of creams, reds, and milky blues, an arm of orange reaches across the center of a quilt, while two spires and one blob of black hover, in stark contrast.


This year, Sky Exchange II launched on a global scale as a PTXM Distributed Community Project. Rather than one artist creating a body of flags, the participants themselves became the makers and contributed one handmade flag to be featured in the final exhibition in Portland, Oregon. When the show is over, all flags will be shipped back to participants but swapped to finalize the exchange itself resulting in each participant receiving a flag made by someone else. The work then lives on with the makers around the world within this shared network of Sky Exchange contributors. And only for a moment, flags from Tokyo to Helsinki to Kansas City, a collection of unique perspectives will wave in Portland.
