purple_shadesYou can’t miss the latest addition to Burnside Avenue—a series of bright purple, star-studded awnings at McMenamins Ringlers Pub beneath the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room. “Named for the Crystal’s originator — dance aficionado and entrepreneur Montrose Ringler — Ringlers features a high, wooden-beamed ceiling and massive, mosaic-tiled bar, with the familiar crack of pool cues in the background.”

the_enclaveThe Enclave by Richard Mosse | Through April 12, 2015 at the Portland Art Museum

“Richard Mosse’s powerful video installation The Enclave (2013) premiered at the 2013 Venice Biennale in the Irish Pavilion. The Enclave was produced using a recently discontinued military film technology originally designed in World War II to reveal camouflaged installations hidden in the landscape. This film registers an invisible spectrum of infrared light, rendering the green landscape in vivid hues of lavender, crimson, and hot pink. On the threshold of the medium’s extinction, Mosse employed this film to document an ongoing conflict situation in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. This humanitarian disaster—in which 5.4 million people have died since 1998—is largely overlooked by the mass media. Frequent massacres, human rights violations, and widespread sexual violence remain unaccounted for. In a kind of advocacy of seeing, The Enclave attempts to cast this forgotten tragedy in a new spectrum of light, to make this forgotten humanitarian disaster visible.” (Excerpt from the Portland Art Museum)
