Selections from the PCVA Archive

RICHARD SPEER
Closes July 30., Thursday May 19
Yale Union (YU)
800 SE 10th Ave., Portland
 
While it is in no danger of setting the world aflame with drama and dynamism, there are some thought-provoking aspects to fledgling nonprofit YU’s inaugural exhibition, Selections from the PCVA Archive. For one thing, its extensive collection of correspondence, programs and newspaper clippings harkened to a time when true art-world big shots had shows in little old Portland. We’re talking Chuck Close, Christo, Robert Smithson and Donald Judd, to name only a few. The clippings also show the extent to which local media covered the arts back in the day. An impossibly long, photo-packed, full-page 1979 Willamette Week feature about a Robert Rauschenberg show would elicit Pavlovian drooling from any arts writer today. What does any of this portend about whether YU can revive public enthusiasm for visual arts? The jury is out, but we’d be cold-hearted cynics if we wished them anything but the best in their efforts.
