Disjecta Contemporary Art Center builds ambitious programs that promote artists and engage communities. Disjecta provides a platform for forward-thinking work but visual and performing artists. Their dynamic programs highlight new ideas and engage with new audiences while creating collaborations between artists, curators and viewers to impact and intervene in the larger contemporary arts dialogue. Through its popular Curator in Residence Program, interdisciplinary public programming, and exhibitions which includes the Portland Biennial, a city-wide survey exhibition, Disjecta has strengthened its position as a champion for artists in the Pacific Northwest.
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is established in New York, NY. His will called for the creation of a foundation dedicated to “advancement of the visual arts,” and he left nearly his entire estate to the cause.
