The Art Gym: Portland2012

Back in 1992, Prudence Roberts, then an associate curator at the Portland Art Museum, was part of a team that resuscitated the Oregon Biennial after its death for many years. The museum once again dropped the biennial in 2007. Roberts now teaches and curates the gallery at Portland Community College’s Rock Creek campus, but she’s returning as the picker-in-chief for the reinvented biennial put on by the alt-arts space Disjecta. Culling from 280 entries and more than 50 studio visits, Roberts selected 24 artists and collaborative teams for four different venues. If you want an old pro’s view of the brightest lights of contemporary Portland artmaking, look for the glow here.
