Visiting Artist Sean Joseph Patrick Carney on OPB
"Since graduating, Sean’s bounced around the U.S. a bit, and he’s now based out of Brooklyn. He is a prolific visual and conceptual artist, writer, and publisher. He co-founded the Conceptual Oregon Performance School in Portland, and createdSocial Malpractice Publishing.
His website will give you a pretty good sense of his art. It includes experimental food venturesand emotionally naked sing-along renditions of hits by Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. A regular contributor to Vice.com, taunter of James Franco, he’s developed a visual language with pop songs, google searches, performance art, installations, and stand-up.
He’s back in town this week, and we’ll catch up with him, along with his former PNCA professor — and our guest curator — Victor Maldonado.”

Lunch conversation followed by a second round of studio visits with PNCA Alum and visiting artist Sean Joseph Patrick Carney. Over lunch we discussed residencies, social media, and how people are generally nice. It’s hotter than a three dollar pistol, we’re all exhausted (it’s week 7 out of 8), and we’re working him to the bone but he’s managed to stay enthusiastic and optimistic. Thank you Sean @SocMalpractice for your generosity.
