DESCRIPTION & STATEMENT

C.O.P.S. (The Conceptual Oregon Performance School) is a free, artist-run, experimental summer school, with a focus on contemporary art and performance strategies. Its mandate is to engage participants in the methodologies, critical theory, and dialogue surrounding the discipline, while investigating its social and cultural role. Participants will experiment with a myriad of contemporary performance strategies, based upon formal and informal lectures, seminar-based dialogue, and structured group critique.

*Each C.O.P.S. three-day session will end with a curated exhibition of participants work at ROCKSBOXCONTEMPORARYFINEART per the visiting artists wishes and desires to do so.
