From the website: “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.”

Organiser: Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery

American exhibition of then-recent work by British artist Sonia Boyce, consisting of eight works produced between 1995 and 2000. The catalogue produced to accompany the exhibition was an important document as it provides a substantial guide to Boyce’s output during a time in which substantial exhibitions of her work in the United Kingdom were relatively rare. (The principal one being Performance at Cornerhouse, Manchester, in 1998).

The exhibition featured the following works:

The Audition Curtain, double-sided photographs suspended by ring-wire, 1997-99
Black Female Hairstyles, 50 collages, 1995
Choral 2, photographic and sound installation, 2001
Head 1 (Skin) and Head 2 (Dread), 2 photo silk screen street posters, 1995
I Want To See It: twirl, wiggle, spin and chew, 4 silent films, 1998
They’re Almost Like Twins, 2 inkjet prints onto heavy-duty vinyl, 1995
Tongues, 4 black and white photographs, 1998
Travel Writer, 5 photocopies of drawings, 1997-2000.
