Composition is an alternative arts space that focuses on bringing together unlikely combinations of art forms to create a necessary dialogue between contemporary visual arts, performance, video, music, fashion and writing. composition is also an incubator for new projects, emerging and established artists and curators.
After being open for a year, composition was awarded The Precipice Fund from Portland Institute for Contemporary Art via The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and The Calligram Foundation/Allie Furlotti. This grant has enabled composition to have more expansive and experimental programming such as ‘wut guise’ a performance art fashion show that was curated in the Historic Ford Building. Upcoming shows include “IN FEAR OF A TRANS PLANET” a touring group of trans poets, “The Clay Will Show Me What To Do Next” a social sculpture event by Amanda Evans in conjunction with Assembly 2015: a co-authored social practice conference. And “Dragcessories: a one queen show exploring glamour and fragility” with Kyle Smith
