Zena Zezza <http://www.zenazezza.org> has the fortuitous use of a new 
space and invites you to the opening of the first projects at the 
Hallock & McMillan---Portland's oldest commercial structure, built in 
1857, predating Oregon's statehood (1859). The Hallock & McMillan stands 
as testimony to Portland's history and is located across from Waterfront 
Park in the heart of Old Town.

New York-based British artist *Anthony McCall*'s solid light 
installation, /You and I, Horizontal/, fills part of the upper floor 
with immaterial sculptural forms which create a new spatial experience 
of the Hallock & McMillan. Since the early '70s, McCall has redefined 
the boundaries between sculpture, film, performance, and drawing, and 
between the viewer and the work. Coincident with his work in Portland, 
McCall's work is being shown in Amsterdam, Auckland, Metz, and Santiago 
de Compostela.

Portland artist *Laura Heit* reimagines Portland's history and the Great 
Flood of 1894 in a two-part installation using animation, projection and 
photographs from the archive and collection of the Oregon Historical 
Society's Davies Family Research Library. Heit's films and performances 
often deal with subjects from the mundane to the cataclysmic.

Zena's use of the space is through the generosity of John Russell and 
Russell Fellows Properties. Special thanks to Geoff Wexler, Library 
Director, and the Oregon Historical Society for their partnership in 
realizing the "1857 Project."
