YOU IN MIND: Yassi Mazandi and Jessica Jackson Hutchins 
August 9 - October 1, 2017

Oregon College of Art and Craft, in conjunction with Converge 45, will host an exhibition by artists Yassi Mazandi and Jessica Jackson Hutchins as part of the organization's second year of programming. Converge 45, a curatorial-driven arts platform that engages audiences and artists in Portland, OR, is pleased to announce its full program and four days of extended programming under Guest Artistic Director Kristy Edmunds, Executive and Artistic Director of the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA. This year’s program encompasses museum and gallery exhibitions, site-specific installations, panel discussions, and events.

24 artists from California, New York, Oregon and Ohio have been invited to present new and existing works throughout eight venues and the public realm, each responding to Edmunds’ framework of “YOU IN MIND.” With this direction, Edmunds has engaged artists who amplify the voice of others, care for the creative commons, and projects that exist without constraints of a market center. Exhibitions have been shaped by local curators in partnership with the artists and Guest Artistic Director. Many of the participating artists have been in conversation with the project since a three-day Artist Congress was held in Portland in 2016.
