KSMoCA International Art Fair is organized by Harrell Fletcher and Lisa Jarrett, co-curated by Amanda Leigh Evans and Roz Crews, and produced in collaboration with MLK Jr. School students, PSU students, and community partners. This kid-scale art fair, hosted this year by the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art, is the culmination of a special 3-week summer program that pairs each booth exhibitor with 3rd-6th grade MLK Jr students and PSU students who participate as gallerists, artists, exhibitors, curators and assistants in artistic and curatorial projects. Exhibitors will display contemporary artwork that is co-created, curated, organized or produced in collaboration with their student partners. Exhibitions throughout the fair include works by emerging artists, collaborative works with students and presentations by established artists. The KSMoCA International Art Fair is a commercial art fair and many of the works on display will be available for purchase. The KSMoCA International Art Fair runs from August 10-12, 2018 in partnership with Converge 45 and includes programmed panels, activities and performances throughout the weekend. All portions of the fair are free and open to the public.
