This week everyone wants fresh. We talk about reboots in some of the traditional arts institutions and meet innovators in music and comics.
- The “Big Think”: a recap of what was said as arts and culture leaders talked policy
- Musician Kishi Bashi on building songs layer by layer by layer
- Curator Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson gives a tour of the Oregon Art Beat Exhibition
- Illustrator Benjamin Dewey’s Tragedy Series seeks the humor in the tragic from an alternative Victorian era
We had a few things we just couldn’t cram in this week.
When you get a sec, go try this game by Grayson Earle. He’s having some fun with both internationally acclaimed artist Ai Wei Wei and Maximo Caminero, who smashed an ancient vase that was part of a WeiWei project earlier this year.
Also, we noticed Star Anna is back in town next month at the Doug Fir Lounge. We got to talk to her last fall about the songs she’s been playing on tour, and the very weird backstory for their creation. Go find the interview, if you haven’t heard it already.
