ABOUT FIELD DAY #2:
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 Cooley 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.
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.
The first field day took place on 4 February 2018 at MoMA PS1, co-curated with Taja Cheek for VW Sunday Sessions.
home school is a free pop-up art school in Portland, Oregon co-facilitated by Victoria Anne Reis and manuel arturo abreu. Their pedagogy honors the casual rigor of the etymology of “school,” from the Greek shkole “spare time, leisure, idleness, rest.” With a multimedia curriculum featuring artist talks, exhibitions, poetry readings, physical education, and other engagements, home school creates welcoming contexts for critical engagement with contemporary art.
The 2018 home school curriculum is supported by a Precipice Fund grant, funded by the Calligram Foundation / Allie Furlotti and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The 2018 curriculum also receives support from a Rhizome Net Art Microgrant. home school field day #2 is generously supported by the Cooley Gallery, Reed College.

The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery.
The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray "in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed's distinctive humanities program." Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region.
