Mack McFarland is an interdisciplinary artist and curator who makes his home in Portland, Oregon. He works in many mediums, with a particular focus on video and drawing. Characterized by humor, mysticism, chance, repetition, and the multi-sensory, his work invites the viewer to experience the intersection of the aesthetic and the cognitive. McFarland has been exhibited nationally and internationally; screening videos at Pixelodeon Festival at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, the La Enana Marron Film and Video Festival in Madrid, and at Cine Fantom in Moscow. McFarland has also created works for the Portland Institute for Contemporary Arts’ Time-Based Art Festival, and a three-month-long project for the Tacoma Art Museum, which Sheila Farr of the Seattle Times called “startling, nutty, and technologically relevant.” His future projects include a West Coast tour with Weird Fiction, the video band he help co-found, as well as a curatorial project at the Feldman Gallery. He is the recipient of the William H. Givler Thesis Award in Fine Arts, the winner of the Charles Voorhies Drawing Competition and received a Couture grant from the New American Art Union as part of the Video Gentlemen.
