We are also planning an exhibition of works not previously shown in Seattle in our South Galleries, which Gary will take over in the winter and spring of 2012.

Gary Hill is the most famous artist from Seattle that nobody from Seattle knows about. This year alone, he’s showing in Brussels, Long Beach, New York (three times), Moscow, Yokohama, Halifax, Berlin, Vienna, Essen (Germany), Chattanooga (Tennessee), Prague, Athens, Sydney, Chicago, Montreal—and that’s just temporary exhibitions, not including all the museums around the world where his videos are on regular display as part of the permanent collection.
