Newspace was excited to be the host venue for the culminating exhibition of the Portland Postcards from America project. Started in 2011, Postcards from America is an ongoing collaborative photographic experiment in creating polyphonic visual sounds. To date, there have been nine Postcards projects around the country involving nearly twenty photographers from the Magnum Photos agency. The tenth chapter, based in Portland, was an exploration of photography and social practice, made in conjunction with the Art and Social Practice MFA program at Portland State University.
On the project’s last night, photographers Susan Meiselas, Jim Goldberg, Alec Soth, Bieke Depoorter, Peter van Agtmael, Donovan Wylie and Zoe Strauss shared their work at a one-night only, pop up exhibition at Newspace.
