Converge 45 is a curatorial-driven arts platform that engages audiences and artists in Portland, Oregon, connecting the city in a global dialog through the vision of leading curators. We invite a Guest Artistic Director into the region for a three-year season of curatorial programming in collaboration with cultural partners for the purpose of supporting the regional arts ecology and expanding the conversation around contemporary art.
