Kunstkammer PDX
Located at Willamette Cultural Resources 623 SE Mill St, Portland, OR 97214
Approximately 2000 square feet, inside a working archaeology lab.
Gallery hours are M-F, 10am – 4pm, 503-281-4576; visitors are shown to the exhibit but not otherwise entertained.

Curated by David Francis, Kunstkammer PDX is an evolving experiment requiring flexibility on the part of artists, curators, archaeologists, and business managers. Functionally, the space consists of a main wall measuring 50’long by 10’ height, adjacent walls of smaller size, and a concrete-floor area of about 2000 sq. feet. Access is through an 8’ garage door. The space would be judged ‘raw’ by commercial standards, with temperature and humidity settings to accommodate the preferences of the business occupants.
Each exhibition will last from one to three months, depending on the scale of the show, and how it works with the overall exhibition schedule. All calls are open to all media, with the caveats mentioned above. Selected exhibitions will receive exhibition show cards, event marketing and support in seeking individual and corporate sponsorship for exhibitions. Catalog are generally created for group shows. Solo show catalogs can be created with the artist's financial participation. Although there are CoCA curators overseeing each gallery, independent curators are welcome to submit proposals.
Curators and artists must submit the following to be eligible (please note we strongly prefer electronic submissions over hard copies): Submit online at or send proposals to:
