For the month of April, ONE GRAND presents a retrospective of films written or directed by HARMONY KORINE, l'enfant terrible of the cinema world whose work has shocked, mystified and intrigued audiences for nearly two decades. Since his debut at age 19 as writer of the highly controversial cult favorite KIDS, Korine has developed into an auteur with a unique process of filmmaking and a specific view of reality, highlighting the surreal, the destitute and the more outlandish qualities of American life.
We'll open each Thursday screening with a 40-minute selection of short films and videos directed by Korine, followed by a feature length film.

One Grand Gallery and Independent Curators International present the Portland debut of Raymond Pettibon: The Punk Years, 1978-86. Best known for his graphic work with Black Flag and SST Records, Pettibon has become a renowned name in the contemporary art world. Culling over 200 designs created during his formative years in the Los Angeles underground punk scene, the exhibit strives to showcase Pettibon's early work and provide a context for the seminal artist's influential and iconic illustrative style. One Grand Gallery is enthusiastic to share the Raymond Pettibon travelling retrospective to the public for a seven-week engagement, opening with a benefit performance by local garage act Blood Beach.
Raymond Pettibon: The Punk Years, 1978-86 is the first in ICI's Exhibitions in a Box series. Circulated by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, this exhibition has been curated by David Platzker. The exhibition is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the ICI Board of Trustees, and ICI Benefactors Barbara and John Robinson.
Original artwork by Neck Face is now available for purchase from our online SHOP!

Many thanks to all who came through to show support! A big shout out to MFNW, our sponsors (InCase, Willamette Week, Heineken), guest DJ's Beer Run and ???????™, and Everyone that helped out to make this event possible. Last, but definitely not least, an epic THANK YOU to Nasty Neck, for making it out to Portland and indulging us with your talent.
This Friday begins the ritual as Neck Face manifests in its human form to conjure up thy minions in the name of his latest atrocity exhibition of desecrated delights. One Grand Gallery in Portland, Oregon will be the ceremonial site as Nasty Neck transforms this once-cheerful space into a pop-up flea market of ghoulish intent. A Deal with the Devil has been made and there’s no turning back.
This new solo installation highlights the root of all evil with a marketplace of the macabre that only Neck Face could envision. The enigmatic Neck’s nightmarish economy comes to life in a place where mankind’s darkest desires are entertained and exploited for just the right price. You’ve already been sold.
A faceless artist rooted in graffiti yet eschewing typical hip-hop leanings in favor of a more sinister death metal approach, Neck grinds up your atypical pop culture references with horrorshow sensibilities and the slyest of humor before regurgitating it onto canvas with his trademark scrawl. As his mischievous mythos continues to expand, so does his scope as deadly metal masks and twisted sculptures now align with his painted output to create installations of the blackest heart. With a flair for the flaming unfortunate and demonic, the artist’s serial scribbling never fails to leave an impression as you’re left without a clue to wonder where he’ll strike next.
At Neck’s request, enjoy the potions freely and consume many of the limited and one-of-a-kind items being made available for the first time ever outside the Gates of Hell. The accused has claimed this to be the last installation of its kind for quite some time as his sinister services will be required elsewhere. The Devil always collects.
