Members of Portland-based Killjoy Collective with share information about starting and maintaining and art collective.
A group of artists in Portland, OR united by the ideals of intersectional feminism and the need to combat gender inequity in the art world.
Our collective goal is to increase the visibility of women, women-identifying, and gender non-conforming artists in Portland and beyond by curating public visual art exhibitions and events representing a community-minded and interdisciplinary approach. We seek to provide a platform for artists exploring urgent, contemporary issues via our artist-run gallery space in SE Portland.
We view Killjoy as a site of resistance and a space for collaborating voices.
Killjoy Collective celebrates and seeks to engage women - women of color, women of all ages, women of all shapes and sizes, women with visible and invisible disabilities, immigrant women, indigenous women, queer women, trans women, and those who refuse to be put in a box. Our organization is feminist, non-hierarchical, unmotivated by profit, and deeply committed to sustaining relationships with artists and audiences. Our artist-run space strives to connect emerging creatives with intrigued audiences in a fun and intimate environment.
Projects hosted by Killjoy Collective are free and open to the public.
