In collaboration with Diné artist Kevin Holden and home school—a pop-up art school based in Portland, OR—with support from black apotrope, the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College is proud to present home school field day #2, a day-long feast of sound, music, performance, poetry, and video screenings, modeled after a school field day.
The home school field day series takes place in former and current educational institutions as a platform for questioning and reimagining the methods, purposes, and dynamics that connect art and education. field day #2 orients itself around medium-nonconforming, medium-agnostic, and medium-antagonistic gestures and practices in performance.
A merchandise table with printed matter, wearables, and other editions will be available! The merch table includes a cassette published on the occasion of field day #2, with sound work by participants of both field days, produced in collaboration with deepwhitesound, an international online label of experimental sound co-founded by DB Amorin.
Food with vegan options and other refreshments will be served. As with all home school events, field day #2 will be recorded and archived online for distance learning.
