Oregon Contemporary (formerly known as Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center), builds ambitious programs that promote artists and engage communities. Oregon Contemporary 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.
Founded in 2013 and launched in 2015 Common Field is a national network of independent visual arts organizations and organizers that connects, supports, and advocates for the artist-centered field.
