Art in the mall
And I’m not talking about the accidental art of the window dressings of certain stores either.
As fascinating as the playful misogyny of Forever XXI’s display may be…
...I doubt it was intended as a commentary on our culture.
In a different part of Pioneer Place however there is deliberate art.
The top floor of one building has been taken over by the Settlement, a group of four experimental galleries which fill empty retail spaces.
Becca and I both contributed to Spread Ego, an exhibition of portraits of artist TJ Norris at one of the galleries in the Settlement.
Other participants include Jason Berlin...
...and Noah Nakell...
...but there are thirty artists in all so it’s well worth a visit to see the many faces of TJ along with all the art at the Settlement. To learn more about the show, Place, and the rest of the Settlement, check out this article in The Oregonian.
