The crocuses are popping up, and this week’s show blossoms with new music, new technology, dazzling comics, and so much more!
Artists Will Transform Your World With Virtual Reality - 1:20
Imagine a gallery where you can step into a painting, fly through the ceiling to the heavens above, or learn a dance from a virtual flamingo. It’s not a world far off. Virtual and augmented reality stand to transform the art world, and the tech incubator Oregon Story Board is on the front lines. We scoped out a new artists residency they jump-started to give artists a chance to play with the newest cutting-edge technology.
The only Portland artist-in-residence, Ryan Woodring, has work in the group exhibition “ICONOCLASTIC” at Reed College’s Cooley Gallery through April 28.
The Last Artful Dodgr Cranks Up The Volume On Portland Hip-Hop - 8:34
The Last Artful, Dodgr (nee Alana Chenevert) initially planned to be an anthropologist, perhaps unearthing fossils instead of rhymes. Instead she found her voice in singing and rapping about the realities of life as millennial, and left Los Angeles for Portland. Newly signed to startup local label Eyrst (a project of former Trail Blazer Martell Webster), The Last Artful, Dodgr has just released her debut record, “Bone Music,” and joined us in the studio with producer Neill Von Tally to perform a trio of spare, artful song. They play “Bone Music” live at Disjecta on March 3 (with back-up dancers!).
