Curator Jamie Wilson met Horner through his widely followed Instagram account @art_as_chairs in late 2020. Wilson had long been a follower of the account and after seeing a James Turrell Perceptual Cell posted on the account, felt compelled to investigate further who was behind this well-established IG account. She was elated to find Joe Horner was newly local to Portland and a skilled emerging artist with a substantial understanding of contemporary art history. Horner also hosts the intriguing podcast Your Favorite Artist’s Favorite Artists where he uses iconic contemporary figures to discuss influences and movements relative to their realm in an unassuming and laid-back format.
The exhibition will include Horner’s unique grip tape on panel work, fully skateable furniture and powerful found object assemblage pieces. Wilson has assembled work from a limited palette that serves to unite the various mediums into a cohesive, potent survey of the types of work Horner excels at.
Outside Dog features minimalist works that explore feral American themes. Along with skateboarding, these objects reference rural values, music, biker, and car cultures.
