The Student Curatorial Committee is a group of students from MLK Jr School who conduct research about local and non-local artists to inform their work as curators of KSMoCA's MLK Jr Gallery. As part of this research, they meet with curators, gallerists, and educators to discuss curatorial topics, study books about contemporary artists, and conduct studio visits with local artists. In 2018, this group established a student-run gallery within the museum to display work by their peers in addition to work by local artists in Portland, OR.
The group meets on Thursdays during lunch and is facilitated by Roz Crews. See below for exhibitions and projects by the Student Curatorial Committee. For updates and interviews, see Notes from The Student Curatorial Committee.
This inaugural exhibition of the MLK Jr. Gallery is a collection of various drawings, paintings, and collages found in the KSMoCA archives.
Graphic Interventions is a collection of excerpts of pages from the comics and stories of Melanie Stevens.
