Oregon Painting Society, Portland, Oregon
Oregon Painting Society is an art collective established in 2007 in Portland, Oregon. The group has produced interactive audiovisual environments, recordings, and performances. They are compelled by The Mystery to forge possible doorways into impossible worlds. Transcendent creative collaboration is both their method and their goal.
Their work was selected as one of 70 of the world’s most innovative independent art spaces, not-for-profit organizations and artists’ collectives, that took over Turbine Hall in celebration of Tate Modern’s 10th anniversary.
OPS is Matt Carlson, Birch Cooper, Barbara Kinzle, Brenna Murphy, and Jason Traeger.
