In CAIRNATOPIA, artist Nan Curtis presents a distinctive cache of found objects and constructed forms. This new body of work showcases various mediums, including; kiln-formed glass, construction flags, and springs from an old mattress. Intensely personal possessions, a handmade indigo-dyed and woven rug, diaries, childhood dolls, boxes of ashes from deceased pets, and the urn of the artist's father coalesce, carefully and precariously, arranged in piles, stacks – cairns.
The Center for Contemporary Art & Culture at PNCA is pleased to announce the hold, an installation by jaamil olawale kosoko exhibited in partnership with the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) as part of their twentieth annual Time-Based Art Festival, happening September 8–18, 2022.
In Kenji Ide’s installation, A Poem of Perception, the Kanagawa-based artist has created a constellation of found objects and small-scale sculptures that encourage viewers to heighten their sensitivity to their own experience of time, place, and imagination.
