Over the years the exhibition has featured arts from various countries and it is currently visited by thousands of people.

In addition to presenting the history of CONTEPOR├éNEO exhibition, Zeca will address in his talk topics such as:  What is necessary to organize the show, the criteria for selecting arts, textile art in Latin America and especially the NEW CURATING PROPOSAL for the coming years. During the lecture, images and videos will be presented for a better understanding of the covered topics.

Also, Zeca is interested in seeing current work from our members.  Please bring one of your current or representative works to show.

The meeting will be held at Crossroads Church, 2505 NE 102nd Avenue in the Gateway area of Portland, south of I-84 and east of I-205.
