Abraham Ingle’s Conceptual Art At False Front Gallery

Portland conceptual artist Abraham Ingle‘s first solo show is quite a curious one. Starting today at False Front Studio in Portland, Ingle will be displayed his socially-inspired art. The show, entitled If A Tree Falls… consists of all new practice projects which explore notions of presence in the age of “always on.” You should definitely visit this blog post on Ingle’s website to view more of the summary, but I’ll pick and choose a couple of interesting components to the six-part show:


Interruptions is a series of three videos that mix content from social media, drama, and real life to explore interaction. Interruptions was made in collaboration with Dustin Zemel.

A collaboration with The Portrait Booth Project, This is How I See You uses portraiture to juxtapose states of hyper-awareness and obliviousness.

The entire show will be streaming on Chat Roulette the entire time. YES.

This is sure to be a fascinating show.
