Spring project series

April 6 – June 28, 2012

Spring project series

This spring we will host a short series of informal events in the apartment of Western Bridge, programmed by guest artists, writers, curators and designers working in Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. The brief, time-based programs are open in format and theme. Presenters are invited to focus on their own work or to expand tangentially to other areas of interest or expertise.

As Western Bridge prepares to close this autumn, we are focusing on the casual social events over the years that have allowed members of the regional art community to share ideas and strengthen the current of criticism and practice in the Pacific Northwest. These informal gatherings complement our regular exhibition schedule with a chance for open-ended discussion and future collaboration. We hope this series of events can be an excuse for day trips, new conversations, and deeper connections between our local communities.
