Well Well Projects is an artist-run gallery located in Portland, Oregon. Co-founded and operated by Jeremy Le Grand, Jessie Weitzel Le Grand, Katherine Spinella, and John Whitten. Well Well opened in January 2021 with the intent of giving artists gallery representation. The co-founders bring their experience as artists, partners, and operators of a variety of artist-run spaces to the table in order to enrich this project and their home base in North Portland’s Disjecta Contemporary Art Center. With a member base that is Portland focused, they aim for this project to serve as a launch pad for artists while open-calls and other opportunities seek to reach a wider audience that expands outside the Pacific Northwest region. Art exhibitions serve as an important foundation to the gallery space, and programming seeks to vary the ways in which Well Well Projects interacts with the Portland community and beyond. Alongside regular solo and group exhibitions, Well Well is developing a series of artists workshops and classes, lectures, and a shop selling publications, art objects and editions.

Archival Content Report
March 8, 2021 (Intl Womens Day) 2pm PST Archival Content Report Instagram videochat shares archival content from past exhibiting artists of the PKULTRA franchise. Examples of archival types include this Visual Art Source article: Rumi Koshino, “Some Songs Have No Words,” 2011, archival inkjet print on paper, installation view, dimensions variable Continuing through December 31, 2011 Rumi Koshino’s site-specific installation, Some Songs Have No Words, muses on the most salient features of Form/Space Atelier. Koshino’s paper pyramids echo the watery patterns of the gallery’s linoleum floor and its well-aged wooden steps. Form/Space Atelier is an odd venue: it’s dominated by a central staircase that quickly descends to a small, dead-end landing. Koshino’s series of small paper sculptures are constructed from digital photographs of the 1960s-era flooring and the shabby stairs. Turquoise pyramids sit on the floor, echoing and blending into the pattern of the linoleum. Rows of pyramids trail up the stairs, and as they do their pattern and coloring changes to match the color and texture of the stairs themselves. This quiet, well conceived installation uses transparent technique and execution to highlight the unusual architecture of the gallery. Step carefully, however, as the pyramids are not fixed to the […]
The Quarantine Exhibition
Solidarity at this difficult time is an important issue! “Quarantine Exhibition” is a virtual exhibition during fragile times. The COVID-19 pandemic changes our lives significantly day after day. Despite the current crisis, art is demonstrating its force. In April, after lockdown measures were put in place around the world, our immediate impulse was to bring together artists, friends, peers and professionals from any geographic location, with no limits on age, nationality, or career stage, through the format of a truly open, open call. The artists were motivated to submit a statement and an artwork in any medium of their choice, transmitting their immediate impressions during quarantine. With a total of 445 submissions, the open call shifted into a plethora of voices and impulses, as well as a cartography of the global sentiment. With a variety of strong and compelling works, the selection process became simultaneously exciting and challenging. Space52 and the selection committee have selected 60 artists that will be included in the exhibition. Selected international artists are invited to engage in a series of online exhibitions, eventually staging a gallery exhibition. Paying tribute to the solidarity shown by artists and institutions, at a time when art is suffering fully […]
