Cooley Art Gallery Exhibition: Jamie Isenstein Will Return

Public reception: September 19, 6–8 p.m., Cooley Art Gallery

The first retrospective of celebrated New York artist and Reed College alumna Jamie Isenstein, class of 1998, is part of the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art's 2013 Time Based Art Festival,, and is curated by gallery director Stephanie Snyder. Jamie Isenstein is represented by Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York. Jamie Isenstein Will Return is an exhibition, an occasion, and a publication. For the past 15 years, Isenstein has created objects, drawings, mixed-media sculptures, and installations that engage the artist’s body as an artistic medium—a subject of humor, theatricality, and historical representation. In keeping with the tragic-comic slapstick of turn-of-the-century Vaudeville, Isenstein explores the subjectivity of the marginalized individual—the bit-player, the human prop, the butt of the joke, the wisenheimer who gets the last laugh. Isenstein was born in Portland and lives and works in New York City.
