The Portland Art Museum presents “Perspectives,” a special exhibition of more than 60 works by local BIPOC (Black, indigenous and people of color) photographers made during the Black Lives Matter protests in 2020. Perspectives features work by artists Emery Barnes, Joseph Blake, Linneas Boland-Godbey, David (Daveed) Jacobo, Mariah Harris, and Byron Merritt. The exhibition opens July 16 and will be on view through Nov. 13.
Captured here are various moments during the 2020 Black Lives Matter Protests through the eyes of local BIPOC Artists in Portland, Oregon. Attendees are invited to follow this journey, relive these moments, listen to the stories and open themselves to the perspectives represented. There is a great transformation underway and it is never too late to be on the correct side of history.
