Come to One Grand Gallery this Friday, May 31st from 7-9pm to see our newest exhibit, The Longest Line. Created by The HMM Collective, this sensational and over- the-top exhibit features the longest line EVER and is designed to challenge its audience on their opinions of social drug taking.
Drugs and their identities vary between individuals, cultures, and jurisdiction, and it can be justified for religious, recreational, or medical reasons. The positive and negative argument of drug-use depends on the way they are used or misused. The HMM Collective and One Grand Gallery is challenging those borders by starting a conversation of euphoria versus evil, use versus misuse, and recreational versus pharmaceutical.
OPENING NIGHT: May 31st 7-9pm
show runs: May31st - July 28th
gallery open: Wed - Sun 11am-6pm

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.
