Assembly 2023 is Friday June 9 through Sunday June 11, 2023
at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr School Museum of Contemporary Art (KSMoCA), Portland OR.
Since 2014, the Portland State University Art + Social Practice MFA students have co-authored an annual multi-day gathering of participatory events, discussions, and presentations highlighting our collaborative work and inspirations. To create this gathering, students make and cultivate projects through existing relationships, curiosity, and chance encounters. In the past this has led us to many places around the city including a community center, city hall, a school, a panadería, a river, a senior center, and more.
This year Assembly is in collaboration with the Dr Martin Luther King Jr School Museum of Contemporary Art (KSMoCA). We will share new work that has emerged in this context, as well as new conversations within existing projects and collaborations at this site. The PSU 2022 Art + Social Practice MFA graduating class will also present public talks about their work as part of the program.
