Joshua Kohl

September 21 – October 20, 2013

Episode 1 in Frye Salon, 2013–14 season.

Joshua Kohl, composer and co-artistic director of Seattle’s renowned Degenerate Art Ensemble, premieres new compositions commissioned by the Frye Art Museum. Earlier this year, Kohl visited his father, legendary writer and educator Herbert R. Kohl. The results of this visit are new compositions, some incorporating elements of his father’s poetry and writings, which will premiere as a live performance on September 19 and remain as a sound installation September 21–October 20.

Joshua Kohl is organized by the Frye Art Museum and curated by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker and Scott Lawrimore. The exhibition is funded by the Frye Foundation with the generous support of Frye Art Museum members and donors. Seasonal support is provided by 4Culture, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, and ArtsFund.
