Unsettling Femininity: Selections from the Frye Art Museum Collection

Bringing together varied depictions of women from the Frye Art Museum’s collection, Unsettling Femininity examines historical conventions of representation during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries to probe the politics of looking and question our habitual ways of viewing images of women.

Through April 19

Subspontaneous: Francesca Lohmann and Rob Rhee

Subspontaneous brings together the work of two Seattle-based artists who collaborate with gravity, time, and the forces of nature in their sculptural practices. In form and content, the exhibition proposes a mutualistic model of co-creation, celebrating contingency, entanglement, and interdependence.

Through April 19

Rebecca Brewer: Natural Horror

Rebecca Brewer’s work straddles the boundary between abstraction and representation to evoke fragmented memories and flowing organic forms. Natural Horror features two recent bodies of work that operate in the idiom of painting but employ materials and techniques associated with craft practices such as felting and embossing.

Through April 19

Agnieszka Polska: Love Bite

Agnieszka Polska creates hallucinatory computer-generated media works that operate at the intersection of language, history, and scientific theory to illuminate issues of individual and social responsibility. This exhibition presents two video installations that address the urgent global issue of climate change and the specter of mass extinction.

Through June 7

Recent Acquisitions: Mary Henry

Mary Henry devoted nearly four decades to creating distinctive works of geometric abstraction. This pair of tonal diptychs distills her impressions of the pale tones and broad glacial expanses of Alaska, and exemplifies the opportunities for experimentation and growth the artist found within the confines of Minimalism.
