Etat de Siege (Under Siege): A performative lecture in different voices. Choreographed by Modou Dieng with the collaboration of young emerging artists based in Portland. Aruni Dharmakirthi, Adrienne Fernandez, Jaleesa Johnston, maximiliano, Angelica Millan, Ruben Marrufo, and Jamaali Roberts.
Adriana Minoliti creates pictorial work from a possible mix of geometry and Queer theory. In her body of work, geometry is the best tool to represent and imagine a trans-human utopia, within which gender theories can be applied to the pictorial language and find new ways of experiment in the visual world. Her exhibitions include Aichi Triennale 2016, Japan; Agustina Ferreyra Galería and Beta Local, Puerto Rico; Mercosul Biennial, Brasil; Brooklyn Museum; and residencies from Mexico, New York, London, and France. She was awarded the Acquisition Prize at the Arcos Dorados Latin American Competition, First Prize Biennial Bahia Blanca, and Acquisition Prize at the Central Bank of Argentina. She lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Bobbi Woods was born in St. Louis, Missouri. She earned a BFA and an MFA from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, in 2004 and 2008, and studied at Staedelschule, Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In 2015, Woods participated in The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project presented by LAND, Tucson, AZ; a two-person exhibition with Mark Verabioff at Ditch Projects, Eugene OR; as well as in a two-person exhibition with Brian Kennon at Fourteen30 Contemporary, Portland, OR. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at Pepin Moore, Los Angeles; Loudhailer Gallery, Los Angeles; Night Gallery, Los Angeles; Infernoesque, Berlin; Derek Eller, New York; Nathalie Karg Gallery, New York; White Columns, New York; Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain, Nice, France.
