AudioCinema presents AC/VC ’09 – a yearly arts event featuring an eclectic grouping of Portland artists working in diverse media. 36 artists and bands will perform and show in a 10,000 square foot warehouse performance space which allows for installation, performance, and wall-mounted art to function harmoniously in a single exhibition.
Portland, Oregon (July 30, 2009) - AudioCinema today announced the details of its upcoming 4th Annual AC/VC (AudioCinema Visual Collective) show and exhibition. AV/VC ’09 will be a multi-media art experience featuring the paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, as well as live music and readings of Portland artists. AC/VC ’09 features 20 visual artists and 16 live bands, and is open to the public.
A working artist himself, AudioCinema’s founder Ilan Laks is the event curator, and has once again scheduled to fill the 10,000 square foot warehouse performance space with the creativity of AudioCinema’s art-career tenants and some invited artists. “This is the first AC/VC since our size-doubling expansion,” says Laks, “and we now have hundreds of talented artists and musicians creating in this building daily.” AC/VC is the event which brings it all out of the studios and into the performance hall to share with fans, friends and the public.
