Bored with Power

Artists Joshua Pew and Molly Eno provide a satirical view of power in the Portland Building’s latest art installation, Bored with Power.


The installation includes a handmade, life-sized, stuffed gorilla on a ply-wood throne. It symbolizes the artists’ feelings towards the perceived power of large corporations, governments, and the general Western world. 


Each year, the Installation Art Series has several exhibition opportunities for talented university students. It’s a great way to introduce up-and-coming artists to the Portland community. Molly and Joshua both received their Bachelor of Fine Arts this year from the Oregon College of Art and Craft. 


The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) sponsors the Installation Art Series. Selected through a juried process, each installation questions common perspectives through art.


Bored with Power is up now through August 14 in the Portland Building’s lobby.


Check out RACC’s website for more information.
