The Art Gym Participating in Portland 2012 Biennial

Excerpt from an article by D.K. Row on OregonLive.com, December 22, 2011.

Disjecta has announced the 24 artists and artist-teams selected for its version of the Oregon Biennial, Portland2012: A Biennial of Contemporary Art.

Curator Prudence Roberts has chosen a broad mix of mostly Portland-area artists. The artists range from emerging figures such as Pop-art inspired artist Sang-ah Choi to acclaimed mid-career ones such as photographer Susan Seubert.

The 24 artists and artist-teams also vary in terms of the types of art they make -- some work in installation, film and video, others in painting and photography.

The artists will exhibit their work in a series of exhibits at several Portland venues starting Feb. 26, including Disjecta, Marylhurst University's Art Gym, and the art gallery at the University of Oregon's Portland campus.

Disjecta began this biennial-style project in 2010 after the Portland Art Museum decided to shelve its once-every-two-year survey of the Oregon art scene in 2006 for a different format entirely. Disjecta executive director Bryan Suereth said that his nonprofit's biennial was not an attempt to continue the museum's biennial tradition, which began in 1949, but to offer local artists a survey-type show that would try to capture the energy, ambition and diversity of the contemporary art world.
