at The Projects Contemporary Art Space, 523 NW 1 Ave
Possessed, an interactive exhibition Curated by Lisa Rockford: The curatorial theme for Possessed is inspired by the rampant trend of “selfies” at art exhibitions. In this group installation art exhibit, the viewer is invited to become part of the artwork. Artists created striking, colorful, provocative, 3-dimensional artworks that will entice viewers to “Strike a pose” next to their work. Each installation will have an “X” where the viewer is to stand, a photo with a “suggested pose,” and specific #Hashtags to use when posting online.
Drinks available for purchase.

at World and Eye Arts Center, 109 NW 5th St
THINGS THAT GO BUMP… This exhibits is about fear. Fear has existed as part of our nature from first humans on into todays world. Fear can protect us from danger, be a reaction to injustice, or a force that pits nations against each other. Fear spans global issues like climate change or can be the personal irrational fears we hold in dreams and dark corners. World and Eye celebrates artists that expose these fearful places as exploration, confrontation or hope. Guests will also get to play with their own interactive mural of fears.

at Box Gallery, 521 NW 1st Avenue
Taking Measure of Chance and Outcomes, Flex 2: When presenting a group exhibition, the curatorial role is generally to encourage the question: why are these artworks together? This is not this kind of exhibition. Here, curator Meg Kaplan-Noach challenges her own role by utilizing the concept of curation-by-chance as an exhibition-organizing methodology. She actively works to remove a unifying theme, instead exploring the subtleties of serendipity. Artists: Leah Brown, Christian Feneck, Virginia Fifield, Bonney Goldstein, Henning Haupt, Donna Haynes and Peter Symons.
