The Portland Biennial program is a survey works by visual and performing artists who are defining and advancing Oregon’s contemporary art landscape. The exhibition will be supported by artist and curator talks, performances, and a catalog documenting the exhibitions and events. The Biennial is an opportunity for audiences, artists, educators, and arts professionals to celebrate and discuss Oregon’s contemporary art.

Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is proud to announce the selected artists participating in the Portland2019 Biennial.

The Portland2019 Biennial of Contemporary Art is a major survey of Oregon visual artists who have a rigorous approach to art-making in the Pacific Northwest. Portland2019 will focus on the nuanced thematics of site, cultural evolution, and the multifaceted histories of the region as told in eighteen projects. The selected artists were chosen as those whose current studio practices have been influenced by their relationships to community, landscape, and local politics.

The curatorial team are eager to champion a wealth of conversations from Oregon artists in all stages of their careers.

The Portland2019 Biennial will be located in Disjecta Contemporary Art Center with the exhibition dually supported by a series of public programming, off-site works, and a supplemental catalog.
