Oliver Myhre (he/they) is a queer, trans-masc, non-binary sculpture and installation artist who lives and works out of Portland, Oregon. He has recently relocated from his home state of Wisconsin to pursue an MFA in Visual Studies at PNCA. Through the experimental use of reminiscent and charged material, he grapples with themes of trans selfhood, memory, the body, and queer coding in western society.

The Transformation Residency Program, created in partnership with Tropical Contemporary, is an opportunity for transgender, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming artists who reside in the state of Oregon. This residency program aims to lessen the social, political, and economic barriers to artistic creation. To that end, this residency offers financial sponsorship.
