Cover to Cover: (re)moved an Exhibition by PNCA's Own During Portland Book Festival

October 22, 2022

(re)moved is an exhibition uncovering new meanings from the erasure of words. The project was imagined by PNCA's Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies students, who will consciously transform a pre-existing text to a new text. Each word of the pre-existing text will be printed individually and hung in the order as it was written. From there, each artist (in a sequential order) will have the opportunity to remove the words of their choosing. 

The removal performance will be recorded and shown side by side with the disassembled text. The events for Cover to Cover are: an exhibition in PNCA’s Gallery 157 that runs from October 31 to November 18, 2022 and an opening reception on Thursday, November 3rd at 6:30 pm, in concert with the Portland Book Festival and Pearl District’s First Thursday.

Both events are free to the public.
