/Is writing an answer to why?
By reading do we know why?
Is there an appreciable difference between writing and reading?

*Reading.Writing.* is an exhibition about the intersections between the
practices of reading and writing and art making. It is the möbius strip
where writing is a kind of reading is a kind of writing ?. On August 5,
2011 *Reading.Writing.* opens at galleryHOMELAND, the Ford Building
(2505 SE 11th, corner of SE 11th and Division), with a reception from
6-9 PM. The exhibition includes work by 18 artists from Portland, San
Francisco, Calgary, Belgrade, and Montreal working in video, print,
paint, sculpture, embroidery, photography, and publication. The
exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with an essay from Anne
Marie Oliver and a poem by David Abel.
These artists (and the poets among them) variously may employ reading as
excavation where words are readymades. They may approach writing (or
erasing) as drawing, as a way of drawing out, thinking-through, as
enactment. They know that the edit and the metaphor are perhaps where
writing and reading have the greatest overlap with the rest of art. For
the artists of Reading.Writing. reading may be an act of divination, of
taking a reading. It may be an act of categorization, a way of making
sense (or nonsense). It may be reading into the meanings of the meanings
of words we read. Writing may be translation (into word or alternate
symbol). For these artists reading and writing can be about everything
but the meaning of the words or even the words themselves.
*Reading.Writing.*, curated by Lisa Radon, is part of the BODY OF
KNOWLEDGE summer series of three exhibitions curated and presented by
Research Club at galleryHOMELAND, sponsored in part by the Historic Ford
Building, Widmer Brothers Brewing, and galleryHOMELAND.
galleryHOMELAND is a Portland, OR based non-profit arts organization
advancing awareness of Portland's rich cultural community by creating
new opportunities and lasting cultural exchange in a unique series of
programs focused on exporting local arts and artists and importing
national and international art and artists.
