Showing Up

  Closed captioned   Audio description

  • In Person

Michelle Williams, Hong Chau, Maryann Plunkett, John Magaro, André Benjamin,

Lizzy (Michelle Williams) takes time off from her art school admin job to finish the sculptures for her upcoming show, but her precious time is consumed caring for an injured pigeon rescued by her landlord, Jo (Hong Chau), an artist preparing for a major exhibition. Reichardt’s gently comic depiction of a community of Portland artists documents the ordinary daily work, and frustration, of sustaining an artistic practice. “Deftly, Showing Up leaves unresolved the familial, creative, professional, and interpersonal matters at its core, staying true to its vision of an artistic environment perpetually caught between modest comfort and precariousness” (Patrick Preziosi, Slant).
