HOPEFULLY I BECOME THE UNIVERSE

Oct 6, 2011 – Oct 27, 2011

THIS EVENT IS OVER

288

Making his debut solo exhibition, local artist/designer/poet Philip Iosca presents a touching collection of new works entitled HOPEFULLY I BECOME THE UNIVERSE. The work is inspired by seven extraordinary young men from across the United States who independently and tragically ended their lives between July 9 and September 29, 2010 as a result of bullying they received for being openly gay or perceived as being gay.

Philip Iosca is a visual artist, award-winning designer and occasional poet. Most recently he published a book of poems entitled Ballad of the Sad Young Men with Publication Studio. Previous exhibitions include Watersports at 12128, curated by Sam Korman; Everything Matter All the Time at The Cleaners at Ace Hotel, curated by Azsa West; Catch All at PDX Across The Hall; Amsterdam Biennale, curated by Matthew Stadler and Publication Studio in Amsterdam and Portland; as well as an invisible monument for Car Hole Gallery last summer.
