Primitive-Moderne: The Art of Mr. Otis
Portland Museum of Modern Art
5202 N. Albina Ave
Through November 24, 2013
Mr. Otis, the pseudonym for writer Stewart Holbrook, pioneered the fictitious Primitive-Moderne school of art in the 1950s. His paintings are satirical of the politics of the time and of contemporary art itself. A selection of his paintings will be on display at Portland Museum of Modern Art.
