Intersecciones: Havana and Portland

BY DANIEL DUFORD
@ VOL 18 ON JAN 07, 2016

"[Havana] is a small city but it created a lot of history and expectation. The American ideas about 'Cuba frozen in time' don't play out. It's both incredibly worldly and intimately local."

In Intersecciones: Havana and Portland from PechaKucha Night Portland Vol. 18, speaker Daniel Duford tells us about being a co-curator of Intersecciones: Havana and Portland, a gallery show featuring six cuban artists at Louis & Clark College. He explains the process of curating a show featuring contemporary Cuban artists.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, May 30th, 2016.

Portland’s Archetype: Where Do You Stop the Clock?

BY HANNAH HOLMES
@ VOL 30 ON FEB 20, 2015

At age eight when Hannah Holmes and her sister wished their bedrooms were joined, her father produced a sledge hammer and ax, and opened a window through which to throw the offending wall. Later, as a world-traveling science writer, she discovered that humanity had invented far stranger ways of fending off the elements. Now a realtor, she studies firsthand the structures we erect between ourselves and Nature; and the complex relationships we nurture with those walls.

Unity is Majority’s Utopian Dream

BY MARK WYNER
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

The internet has been a catalyst of opening up societies into a global awareness. It has truly narrowed the divide between human beings. Other new technologies have opened doors for those with visual/aural impairments, and those living with illiteracy. These unifying ecosystems are a reflection of how we value equity. Mark Wyner explores how we’re doing with this.
