For more than 20 years, Portland-based film and video artist Vanessa Renwick has been creating work that engages political, environmental, and often unpretty themes. But her creations have a humorous thrust, too, as in her current Portland Art Museum exhibit, Next Level Fucked Up, a multichannel video and sound installation that chronicles the way humans screw with the natural world, from neutered dogs to ghastly new apartment buildings to melting glaciers. Tonight’s program begins with a viewing of that exhibit, followed by a career-spanning selection of 11 of Renwick’s films. She’ll be in attendance for a postshow Q&A.
