The University of Oregon's White Box Gallery (BTW, which isn't a white box) has extended its deadline for proposals to the 23rd of April and it's a chance to show in a series of rooms that Donald Judd has rocked. It's good for 3-5 person group shows too. Here's the PR:
"The University of Oregon Portland's White Box is currently seeking project proposal submissions for February 2013 ? June 2014. Through exhibitions and related educational and public programming, the White Box is dedicated to creating a laboratory for the exploration of contemporary creativity and critical inquiry. White Box programming aims to reflect and extend the intellectual work of the University, expressed via fine art, new media, interactive video, installation, architecture and design, attracting diverse audiences with a range of specific interests.
Architects, designers, artists, curators and organizations are encouraged to submit proposals for exhibition programming in the White Box. Preference will be given to original exhibitions, curated for the White Box spaces, exploring contemporary inquiry from unique perspectives, and demonstrating a relationship to Portland's community and the academic mission of the University."
For more information like proposal forms and floor plans visit their website.
Due April 23rd 2012

Michael Reinsch's "AS-IS"
Also, on Saturday PLACE presents, 34 Years of Whiteness: Race & Ethnicity in the Work of Julie Perini and AS-IS with Michael Reinsch. Here's the spiel:
"'I have been creating white videos and white films for over fifteen years and I never even realized it. During that entire time, I thought I was just making art. I thought of my works as formal explorations, even as social interventions Over and over, however, I also have been constructing images of whiteness based on my own experience as a white person living the United States today. Recently I have begun to wonder how this works. This new, exploratory lecture is the beginning of a longer-term investigation into whiteness, white privilege, racism, and racial identity.'
Michael Reinsch's installation examined the relationship of commerce, materiality, and performance. Reinsch made art on demand creating at the rate of $5 per minute and when not activated as a piece he would keep to himself not interacting with the attendees. He will be discussing intention, process, and the relationship of finance in performance/installation."

Joe Macca from his show at NAAU
Joe Macca having a Two Man show with himself at the Art Gym isn't a surprise, it is the the fact that the Art Gym is attempting this at all. As an artist/personality Joe Macca is both incredibly shy and aggressive with zen like abstractions on one side of his schizophrenic oeuvre and hyper-competitive /self-image positioning work on the other. It has never been clear which body of work is better, though his obsession with me (w'eve made cookies together in a video) indicates he has incredibly poor taste and cooking skills in stark contrast to his formal abstraction skills... the boy is fire hazard in the kitchen! I suspect I'm just the kind of older brother he always wanted to have (I play better tennis and rock so much harder) so we'll see if I give him a wedgie at the opening? Props to curator Terry Hopkins for tackling something with a little attitude/inscrutableness here, it is likely not your usual soft edged form of off white academic conceptualism the Art Gym often presents. Here's the PR:
"Many artists work in several veins, often distinguished by mediumpainting, drawing, printmaking, sculptureand sometimes by subject matter. What has puzzled me about Joe Maccas output is that he works in ways that are polar oppositeshot/cold, perfect/messy, slow/fast, meditative/mad. This is what led me to propose the exhibition Joe Macca: Two Man Show.
Macca creates paintings that are carefully planned and perfectly executed abstractions that respond to the natural world or, as the artist puts it, that express the "literal and symbolic, ephemeral and transient." In contrast to the pulsating calm or dark interiority of those paintings, the postcards and studio flotsam run the gamut from rude and crass jabs at his fellow artists to mockingly self-aggrandizing promotions of Macca the artist, Macca the man.
Accompanying Joe Macca: Two Man Show is the P.O.d Postcard Show, a small exhibition of postcards and other correspondence by Mack McFarland and Anna Gray and Ryan Wilson Paulsen. Over the years, I have received many interesting postcards, painted envelopes and objects through the mail. For the P.O.d Postcard show I was looking for mailed art that commented on society or the artworld or both. McFarlands Ten-foot-pole drawings of politicians and policy makers that he presumably would not touch with a ten-foot-pole fit the bill, as did Gray and Wilson Paulsens series of mailed posters commenting wryly on contemporary art practice."
