Houseguest is a new residency program hosted at Pioneer Courthouse Square (PCS), Portland Oregon’s largest and most accessible public plaza. It’s an experiment in site-specificity, collaboration, and participatory public art in a city where space is an asset. Houseguest will host four artist residencies to engage the space, the public, and relevant Portland issues through participatory practices. Currently, there are two remaining residencies available. Each artist in residence will be awarded $20,000 to activate Pioneer Courthouse Square during the weekends of October 28-30, 2016 and May 12-14, 2017. Upcoming deadlines are September 1 and February 1. Interested in knowing more about Houseguest? Please join our curators at an information session on Wednesday, August 3rd at Likewise (3564 SE Hawthorne Blvd). A short presentation will be provided about the current submission process, eligibility, selection criteria, and conceptual framework about the project. Questions are encouraged and welcome! Houseguest is made possible through the generous support of Oregon Community Foundation, The Miller Family Foundation, and Pioneer Courthouse Square, Inc.
