Feeling adventurous? If you don’t require your art to be presented in a Pearl District white box, taking a trip down a couple of alleys off NE Alberta will likely prove rewarding this evening. Spring has sprung when Last Thursday swings into action. Thread through the vendors and buskers to find the south alley off NE Alberta between 26th and 27th.
Appendix Project Space kicks off it’s 2010 programming season with a new partnership with Little Field Gallery (another gallery in another garage off another, nearby, alley) and a new performance space, HAY BATCH!, curated by Portland artist Matthew Green.

At Appendix find an installation by Nathan Dinihanian and Molly Cooney-Mesker. Nathan Dinihanian is a site-specific furniture designer and fabricator whose interests reside in the conjunction where place and space meet. Molly Cooney-Mesker’s work investigates the intersections of social and physical space and how pathways change or are determined by guidelines and social patterns.

And at Little Field Gallery FOR REAL! is a show of work-on-computer exploring viral replication, digital image curation, pixel work, and interactivity with work by Tabor Robak, DUMP.FM, Brad Troemel (The Jogging), Zachary Davis, Josh Pavlacky, and Future Death Toll.

Both are open from 6-11 PM. At 8 PM at HAY BATCH!, a rowdy quartet of young Portland artist-instigators (
Matthew Clifford Green, Sean Joseph Patrick Carney, Michael Reinsch, Eric Gibbons) bring
JOSEPH’S BOYZ: BOYZ NIGHT OUT. Stand back.
