Jeff Jahn on KBOO

Listen to the interview here.

Jeff Jahn blasted into this town over ten years ago, curating group shows with far-reaching consequences. It’s safe to say that the PDX art world, as viewed through the commercial gallery system, seemed overly familiar. His curation of “The Best Coast,” “Play” and “Fresh Trouble” are just a few examples of his success at revealing a different kind of Portland art world. Jeff also co-founded PORT, a website all about Portland art – and he occasionally writes elsewhere (such as for Modern Painters). He is also a practicing artist and this month he is showing Vection at The New American Art Union and we’ll talk about the work on Art Focus tomorrow. OPENWIDEpdx has some installation pics here.
