Check out this video from Michael Alm. Michael is showing next month at Hellion in our big sculpture show, “Reverse Engineered” with AJ Fosik, Jshea, Souther Salazar, Troy Coulterman, and Yosakay Yamamoto.
I was asked to give a talk for Creative Mornings on the subject of bravery. The talk took place last month at Ziba here in Portland. It was my first time giving a talk to a large audience. If you ever wanted to know how Hellion operates, watch the talk and find out.
We are thrilled at Hellion to have one of our own in the current issue of New American Paintings. Stephanie Buer is a phenomenal artist. Stephanie had a show at Hellion this past October. You can check out some of the remaining inventory for the show here.
AJ Fosik has a show up at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York until December 21st. I highly recommend checking it out. I was lucky enough to get to document AJ’s process of making the work for “Against the Infinite” over the last year here in Portland.
Here are my photos.
Process of making the pieces throughout 2013
Stellar work from Jen Lobo and a great turn out.
Good times at Hellion tonight. December marks 3 years for Hellion Portland. It has been good, bad, insane and fantastic. Wouldn’t change a thing.
Here is the math.
8 consecutive years curating in Portland, 7 years in old town, 3 as Hellion and 2 books.
Number of shows, not sure – over 100 in Portland, 5 in Tokyo and 4 in San Diego.
So much more to come.
In the main gallery we have Desire Path with Jen Lobo.
Also tonight. Poet of Geometry book release with Cole Gerst.
UFO907 and Madsaki collaborated on a show at Clear Edition in Roppongi, Tokyo at the beginning of this month. Very convenient location, only a couple blocks from my new apartment. UFO907 and Madsaki were roomates in New York and this show revisits the days when they worked together in NYC.
