Zena Zezza is a project directed by Sandra Percival.

Zena Zezza is a contemporary art project that supports and presents the work of artists—their ideas, influences and the questions they raise. Each Artist Project Season produces an exhibition and an integrated series of discursive and performative events to stimulate new ways of thinking about art and contemporary culture. Zena encourages critical thinking through collaborating with academic and cultural institutions and presents unusual opportunities for conviviality and public conversation.

Zena Zezza is a 501c3 nonprofit organization in Portland, Oregon.
