The next exhibition at the White Box will be COLLECT FOUR: Scenes From Portland’s BleedingEdge. This show includes four artists and is curated by Jesse Hayward. He is the subject in this interview.
Hayward claims: "The artists in this show are all, first and foremost, collectors. Ben collects moments. Jason collects motif. Midori collects abstractions while Matt collects simplicities. They are earnest. They emphasize the clean and clear display of their artwork. These are not artists who confuse, misdirect or rely on trickery for effect. These are artists who sample first and filter later. Their early careers run parallel as well.
