S1 is an artist-run project space in Northeast Portland. Since the summer of 2014, S1’s dedicated staff works closely with local, national, and international artists to organize visual art exhibitions, performances, and late-night dance parties. For one night, S1 pulls its diverse artists and projects out of the basement for S1 Presents at THE WORKS.
S1 Presents will feature DJ sets, live performances, installations, and interactive video art. Celebrated avant-pop explorer Zola Jesus performs a rare DJ set, Coast2C displays her voracious enthusiasm for worldly electronic music with an expansive dance journey, and US Hard / Contemporary performs live, taking command of his machines to summon focused experiments in minimal beat music. Visual artists from around the globe—selected by S1’s curatorial staff—will be featured on and off stage for an immersive experience.
