ATTN: MUSIC LOVERS / FEMINISTS / DJS / MIX TAPE MASTERS / ETC.

 

If you made a playlist to celebrate women, what would be on it?

Would you rock Bey + Minaj? Rage out with Alanis? 
Or perhaps curate a throwback flow with I’m Every Woman > I’m Going Down > Creep > None of Your Business...

 

ODE TO WOMEN is a publication in the works of playlists that will celebrate the good, the bad, and the rad.

Salad, the ​S​elfie, and the ​S​elf : an open, calorie free* conversation about the impact and accessibility of social media

Soltesz Fine Art

1825 NW 23rd Avenue, Portland, OR

Thursday, July 1​4​th / 6pm-7:30pm

Soltesz Fine Art and Leslie Vigeant invite you to an indoor picnic where critical inquiry is the main course. Contemporary culture accepts image as fact. Lists have replaced articles. Memes have replaced interpretation. Thumbnail feeds have replaced group conversations. Some of this is adapting with the times, some may be seen as manifest destiny. We’ve all heard the phrase “too much of a good thing…” but what happens when substance is stripped and what we are left with is a facade?

 

As an artist I am interested in a contained conversation which investigates the unexpected impacts that the selfie, formally known as the self portrait, has on one’s perception of themselves.*

Join us in an open debate over the effect that this constant reduction ha​s​ on the perception and understanding of the self.

From critical discourse to sidewalk talk, language is both abundant and tender. 

Damp and sticky, ​words permeate ideas and thus behavior. In this way, conversations are a hot house for interpersonal exchanges. RIPE hyper/lux/shine/theory steps into the alluring and disorienting framework of "basic" dialogue. Featuring captured quotes from daily life, this work directly looks at how ​language can fester ​and be harbored in dark places.
