Rodrigo Valenzuela (b. 1982), Upfor Gallery, Portland: Upfor is showing works from the Santiago-born artist's black-and-white photography series, American-type (2018). It takes its name from a 1955 essay by the critic Clement Greenberg which proposes that post-war US painting was more about the act of painting than complex ideas around representation. It aims to reflect on “how much the absence of content has become the American gold”, the artist says.
