ANX Gallery Presents: Beauty in Fragility by Maya Vivas
ANX Gallery

Beauty in Fragility is the combination of two distinct bodies of work: “Radical Emergence: An exploration in adaptation, sensuality, & abundance” and “Black: Dissected & Articulated.”

These works not only illustrate my struggle to conceptualize and navigate my own complex identities, but meld together ideas of growth, harvest, commodity and the exchange of goods. Radical Emergence (works in porcelain) serves as the exterior side of this struggle, exploring beauty in growth; while Black is interior, delving further into identity, gaining comfortability in vulnerability, and realizing that there is beauty in fragility. -- Maya Vivas

Poetry reading at 7pm by t.a. edwards. t.a. edwards as healer, writer, artist and audience works from the understanding that art is the practice of being in presence and therefore involved in each of her embodied roles. The Ugliest Girl in The World is a series of poems attached to a conceptual performance with themes of black excellence, othering of black femininity, loneliness, greed, rage, and vulnerability. Following the life of Julia Pastrana, a world famous Victorian era side show freak, Edwards invites the listener into the contemporary experience of the black femme body.

A Situation of Meat
DISJECTA, 8371 N Interstate

Disjecta is proud to announce the opening of its 7th Curator in Residence series, curated by Julia Greenway. A Situation of Meat includes large scale installation work by artists Mel Carter, Dakota Gearhart, Maggie-Rose Condit, Braxton Congrove, and features a video by Elizabeth Mputu. Supportive programs and events curated by Julia Greenway will be held in Portland and Seattle throughout the exhibition. The show runs through October 29, 2017 and the gallery is open Friday–Sunday, 12–5pm and by appointment. All events are free to attend and open to the public.

A Situation of Meat presents a group of new installation works exploring contemporary femme identity as mediated through online culture. Using sculpture, video, and digital prints, A Situation of Meat acts as a paradox between the beauty and the grotesque of gendered self-presentation.

Seattle-based curator Julia Greenway will curate four exhibitions for the 2017-18 season at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center for the Curator in Residence Program. Greenway focuses her curation on the examination of digital media’s influence on the aesthetic presentation of gender, economics, and environment.

Pleasure Communism [on display]
through PSU Smith Center, 1825 SW Broadway

White Gallery presents

"Pleasure Communism"
Vera Rubin

On display: January 8 – 31, 2018
Reception: Thursday, January 11, 6–8 PM

Pleasure Communism is an installation that explores new visions of love and connection in and out of a dying world. Part visual art, sculpture, and polemic, Pleasure Communism seeks to place itself at the table in conversations surrounding the violence of liberal individuality, the radical nature of the underground, the revolutionary potential of the collective consciousness, and the imagining of a liberating cyborg future. Pleasure Communism has been informed by the love and lessons learned from seedy backrooms of nightclubs, the pits of chronic trauma and despair, inside trance states, outside in the desert. Step inside, the pain is over.

Vera Rubin is an visual artist and musician residing in Portland, OR. Her weekly radio show Shadow Cruising focuses on dark, experimental, avant-garde and techno music. She has worked with artists such as Hercules and Love Affair, Silent Servant, White Visitation, and Light Asylum. Her visual art has been featured across the country in various nightclubs and underground galleries. She is a self-taught artist, autodidact, and anarchist. Listen more at soundcloud.com/verarubin.

Me, Myself & It Exhibitions
through PSU Smith Center, 1825 SW Broadway

Littman Gallery presents

"Me, Myself & It" Anthony Hudson / Carla Rossi

On display: February 7 – March 2, 2018
Reception: Thursday, March 1, 6–9 PM

Curated by Andrew D. Jankowski


Carla Rossi is Portland’s premier drag clown, the Ghost of White Privilege (and, as she would say, that’s funny because white privilege will never die), and Portland’s third best regional celebrity – second only to two. Whether due to soulful artistic need or a demonstrable lack of marketable skills, I share my body and skin and voice with Carla, occasionally letting her possess me to offer a clown’s take on whiteness, gender, and the American Dream as pursued by an immortal trickster demon. As a half-Native (Grand Ronde) and half-white gender-confused millennial whatsit, Carla functions as my Coyote, as the best way I know to critique whiteness and negotiate gender in the world and within myself. And for the last five or so of her eight years I've collected prints of Carla’s face every night after a show. Each print is taken with a Neutrogena™ makeup wipe, calmly massaged and pressed into my pores as I scream and struggle out of layers of tights, shapers, pads, glitter, glue, and tape. I've now accumulated around 200 prints providing evidence of this ephemeral entity – like Veronica’s veil, each offering a trace of Portland's clown queen and her evolution alongside an ever-changing city.

As part of closing reception for Me, Myself & It, Carla Rossi will provide a keynote address about the artistic process and why she's too good for it.

Anthony Hudson is a multidisciplinary artist, performer, and filmmaker perhaps best known as Portland’s premier drag clown CARLA ROSSI, an immortal trickster whose attempts at realness almost always result in fantastic failure. Anthony & Carla host and program their LGBTQ film series QUEER HORROR bimonthly at the historic Hollywood Theatre, and Anthony’s new play STILL LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY is in process at Artists Repertory Theatre. Its companion piece, Anthony’s storytelling cabaret LOOKING FOR TIGER LILY, is making its New England premiere at Dartmouth College in April 2018. Find out more at TheCarlaRossi.com.


The Littman Gallery and White Gallery are student-run exhibition spaces at Portland State University. Our mission is to provide the tools for a critical experience of visual culture through direct exposure to a comprehensive program of contemporary art for students and community members. We envision the Littman and White Galleries as centers for cultural enrichment where an indispensable art experience is accessible to all perspectives and levels of education.

Refugee Art Sale
f&b cafe at the Arthouse

Please join us for an art exhibit hosted by f&b cafe. This event features artwork by refugees currently living in refugee camps in Greece.

This event will support Love Without Borders - For Refugees In Need, an international non-profit grass roots organization that provides support services to refugees. This is a program that started in northern Greece that provides the space and supplies for refugees to express themselves and process the trauma in their lives through art.

Kayra Martinez, the founder, has been volunteering her time for the last two and a half years to run this program. She offers art classes to residents of refugee camps in her home nearby. Each piece is then sold in exhibitions such as this one at f&b cafe. She has exhibited the art all across the US and Europe.

This exhibit consists entirely of artwork created by refugees stranded in Greece. The paintings were produced by children, teens, and adult refugees. The artists are primarily from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and Pakistan.

100% of proceeds from each sale are donated directly to the artist so that they can buy basic necessities while living in the camps (food, medicine, etc). Prices for the pieces range from $40-100+ depending on quality. Kayra supplies all of the art materials herself and through donations, so we are grateful when people buy art, but also when they donate a bit to help sustain this program!

The art is available for purchase and viewing all day. Volunteers will be available during the day for any questions. At 5:00pm we will have a special presentation by Kayra Martinez.
