Assembly Program #2: See You Again
Utilizing performative caucus-form voting, See You Again is an evening cocktail and dinner event where members of the public are invited to actively participate in voting for a socially-engaged work to be proposed to the museum for permanent collection. Students in the Art and Social Practice MFA program at Portland State University will each champion one artwork by Paul Ramierez Jonas, Pedro Reyes, Stephanie Syjuco, Ben Kinmont, Carmen Papalia, and Ariana Jacob. Members of the public are then invited to vote caucus-style for their favorite work of art. Come join this free event and vote for the first socially-engaged artwork to be considered for the museum’s permanent collection.
Pizza and salads will be available for purchase by Tastebud and cocktails/beer by Merit Badge.
This program is part of Shine A Light: Rethink What Can Happen in a Museum. Once an annual event, today Shine A Light takes the form of an occasional public program series that presents artist and community-driven projects on select Friday nights and weekends. Shine A Light continues to focus on and celebrate new forms of experiential, participatory, and social practice art within the context of the Portland Art Museum. It also takes place in conjunction with Assembly: A Co-Authored Social Practice Conference hosted by the Art and Social Practice MFA program at Portland State University.
Tickets: Free. No advance tickets required.
