Dear Friends, Supporters, Collaborators, and Visitors,

Zena Zezza’s recently completed our seventh Artist Project Season, YANG FUDONG—Yejiang/The Nightman Cometh to Dawn Breaking, presenting Yang Fudong—an internationally recognized contemporary Shanghai-based artist/filmmaker—at the historic 1857 Hallock & McMillan, Portland’s oldest building in the heart of Portland’s Old Town Chinatown.

Your participation as a donor, member, friend, and visitor is more meaningful than ever. Zena has been extremely fortunate to have received a significant Cultural Development Grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust to realize Yang Fudong’s season. Reinhabiting the 1857 building and presenting an ambitious installation of five films, nine screenings and an international virtual performative dialogue event with Yang Fudong and Singapore based curator Uta Meta Bauer would not be possible without your support. Zena’s most crucial foundation is you—those who visit and attend events, and those who are watching and engaging from afar.

With much to look forward to and we continue to rely on your help and generosity to support contemporary artists and guests from other fields to present challenging discursive and performative programs for you and new audiences, while building diversity and community connections. We are enriched by the generosity of our supporters and committed to sharing our resources. 

Please join us and support our work by making:
– a donation of any amount
– becoming a member 
– purchasing artists’ books and editions  
Any amount from $5 and up as a one time or monthly gift makes a difference. 

Over the summer, we look forward to welcoming you to visit ZZZ Books and attend special events.

We thank you for continuing to support Zena Zezza with your generosity. 

Sandra Percival, founding Director and Curator
