“The Longest Line” Exhibition at One Grand Gallery
D.A.R.E., TRUTH and other campaigns over the years have played an integral role in America’s domestic ‘War on Drugs.’ These campaigns have had varying success rates, though the underlying cornerstone in both seems to portray all substances as being necessarily negative. Portland’s One Grand Gallery is set to host an interesting counterargument in the form of “The Longest Line” exhibition. The exhibit, created by The HMM Collective, aims to question attitudes toward drugs across the board, arguing that use and misuse, ‘doing’ versus ‘overdoing’ should be the real topics for discussion. The cheekiness of the exhibition is underlined in its title, which refers to an installation that literally displays a near-infinite ‘line.’ “The Longest Line” will run from May 31 through June 28.
