The Portland2019 Biennial of Contemporary Art is a major survey of Oregon visual artists who have a rigorous approach to art-making in the Pacific Northwest. Portland2019 will focus on the nuanced thematics of site, cultural evolution, and the multifaceted histories of the region as told in eighteen projects. The selected artists were chosen as those whose current studio practices have been influenced by their relationships to community, landscape, and local politics.
