PDX CONTEMPORARY ART is proud to present Dislocation, a two month summer group show featuring works of art from fifteen PDX represented artists as well as seven invited artists who considered the idea of dislocation as a metaphor and how the term would be addressed in their art work.
Mathematically, dislocations are a type of topological defect. Dislocations behave as stable particles: they can move around, but maintain their identity. Two dislocations of opposite orientation can cancel when brought together, but a single dislocation typically cannot "disappear" on its own.
