Nathanael Thayer Mossis a multidisciplinary artist/musician. His current work explores transcendental ideas of perfection through esoteric design and repetitive geometry. He is heavily influenced by futurist design, space architecture, video game landscapes, and electronic music. His work balances design and chaos working in pre-determined parameters as a way to produce meta-iconic imagery.
Stephanie Simek has been living in Portland for 6 years, where she has been creating experiments with sound, performance, & sculpture with an arching focus on positivity, empowerment, and coexistence. In addition to these works, she designs a line of wearable accessories using unusual materials and forms.

Safe & Sound? is a documentary video installation by a collective of artists and community organizers in Portland, Oregon who are concerned about the Portland Police Bureau's routine use of excessive force and other methods of intimidation. Safe & Sound? tells stories about police brutality and resistance to police brutality in the Portland community. The movie foregrounds interviews with Portland community members including family members of individuals killed by police, survivors of police brutality, and community members who speak out against police violence.
On May 18 the Safe & Sound? website will launch and will contain all of the media from the installation as well as additional interviews and resources. This project is funded by a Community Participation Project Grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council.

Ron Graff has been Associate Professor of painting at the University of Oregon since 1980. He has received several awards including the Oregon Arts Commission, and a Ford Foundation Grant, as well as lecturing on his work at numerous distinguished Universities and Art Institutes.
Donald Morgan takes advantage of the tiny gap between the two and three-dimensional. His sculptures and paintings function together as a hard-edged geometric landscape, giving rise to temporal and spatial shifts.

Mike Daisey, hailed by The New York Times as "the master storyteller," returns to Portland with the world premiere of his new work. In a single night, Daisey takes us on a fantastic journey through the sprawling landscape of journalism right now touching on how it functions, how it fails us, and how it chooses to tell our stories. Using his own scandal as a jumping-off point, he illuminates how the myth of objective journalism weakens and manipulates us and has made our public discourse easy to manipulate. It is a love letter to journalism highlighting the struggle to tell a story that actually shows us the truth. click to buy tickets

Jane Schiffhauer's installation created by handmade undulating nets, ropes, foliage, human hair, and found objects explores the intricacies of our being in relationship to our surrounding environment. Body of Knots highlights the anxieties between what it means to be human and live in contemporary society. Schiffhauer seeks materials that are often contradictory in their nature as well as their purpose in order to comment on gender and the body. For example, ropes may bind as well as create a way of escape and nets may be used as a trap or to offer security.
Fern Wiley's minimal & nuanced drawings are a meditation on the passage of time and energy. Art making for Wiley is a product of her grappling to understand and conceptualize human experience. Currently, Wiley is working from more abstract points of reference, to examine our experience of time and space.

On Sunday, you are invited to participate in the Shadow Box project. Have your silhouette recorded in a custom-designed camera-less photo booth, resulting in a life-size, anonymous, outline print. A selection of these prints will then be exhibited in Shadows, by artists Anna Daedalus and Kerry Davis, at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center beginning June 6th.
The Shadow Box is a memory instrument built to create images that evoke the shadows left by victims who were vaporized by the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The project is supported in part by a grant from Regional Arts & Culture Council. Special thanks to Oregon Nikkei Endowment
Those who want to participate should wear non-bulky, warm-weather attire (dresses, skirts, form-fitting pants and short sleeve shirts). Make sure the silhouette can be clearly distinguished. All ages are welcome. ADA accessible. Attending does not guarantee inclusion in the Shadow Box project.

Vaginal Davis' paintings of women on repurposed surfaces are made using glycerin, tempera, watercolor pencils, food coloring, mascara, nail polish, & other beauty products. Her small works are self-portraits which also show her respect and admiration for movie stars, and imagined women of the past. According to Davis, they depict "women trapped in the bodies of women."
Davis' works will be presented along with wire and found material assemblages by the Philadelphia Wireman. Wireman's bundles consist of different gauges of wire wrapped around everyday objects and materials. Their maker, who has always remained unidentified, was able to communicate such power and energy through his transformation of ordinary materials. The pieces are often compared to African power objects and other ritualized traditions, but the works resonate equally with art practices. So intriguing.
For her show at Nationale Aidan Koch has appropriated the anthropologist's distanced lens, threading together, rearranging, and questioning fixed history. Her exhibit carries on her interest in form and storytelling which come from observing carefully rendered human forms from long ago. Once idolized and idealized she sought out to see if these works still contain power and attraction.
"All this twaddle, the existence of God, atheism, determinism, liberation, societies, death, etc., are pieces of a chess game called language, and they are amusing only if one does not preoccupy oneself with 'winning or losing this game of chess."
& that's all the information I have too.
