Founded in 2013, Upfor presents early career and established artists whose work examines and challenges cultural and artistic orthodoxies. Upfor participates in national and international art fairs throughout the year.

Upfor is located in Portland, Oregon on the traditional territory of the Chinook and Clackamas. We are grateful for the land itself, and for the people who stewarded it over generations, from whom we strive to learn.

Upfor cannot accept unsolicited artist submissions or exhibition proposals. Thank you for your understanding.
