Artist Group Physical Education in Residence at Linfield Gallery 

February - May 2018

 

Linfield Gallery is pleased to present a three-month partnership with Portland-based artist group Physical Education (PE). A collaborative project between keyon gaskin, Allie   Hankins, Takahiro Yamamoto, and Lu Yim, PE offers artists of all mediums and curious individuals, immersive and varied methods of engaging with dance and performance.

At Linfield, PE will work with students and community members to create a series of exhibitions and public programs. Past PE programming has included reading groups, lectures, performances, aerobics classes, movement workshops and artist shares. The group’s motivation is to inspire critical engagement and dialogue between individuals of varying mediums and practices, while deepening their connection to performance and their sense of embodiment.

A schedule of events and exhibitions will be posted shortly.

Additional support for this project comes from the Yamhill County Cultural Coalition, which includes funding from the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Oregon Community Foundation.

 

ABOUT PE

PE began as an intimate reading group centered around critically engaging with performance, dance, media, theory and ideas amongst artists keyon gaskin, Allie Hankins, Takahiro Yamamoto, and Lu Yim. The group opened up to the community and started to host and organize reading groups and performance events when they landed their first Precipice Fund grant in 2015. Since then they have collaborated with S1, Holocene, and Short Space.

They curated history is a hole in collaboration with HQ Objective and PNCA, and hosted a reading group with de:canon project (2017). Most recently, PE put on SAY WHEN , their first mini-festival which curated international and Portland-based performers and interactive media artists. They are two time recipients of the Precipice Fund (2015, 2017). They were artists-in-residence at PNCA’s Center for Contemporary Art & Culture(2016-17). PE has toured as a group to Minneapolis and San Francisco and were visiting artists in Garrick Imatani’s Invisible Weather at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, OR.

They do not identify as a collective and have yet to find a fitting word other than Physical Education to describe what they are.
