Much happening this week: New installations! Parties! Workshops!
Hiroshi Sugimoto: Catherine Parr
May 9 – July 26
This photographed image of the wax figure of Henry VIII’s last wife invites questions about perceptions of history and popular culture through Sugimoto’s creation of visual dissonances. Three UW faculty members’ responses to the latest piece in our Viewpoints series are on view alongside the image on our mezzanine.
The 2015 Brink Bash
Fri, May 15, 6 – 8 PM
Contemporary and Patron Circle members are invited to join us to celebrate the 2015 Brink Award finalists. Meet the seven finalists at Hilliard’s Taproom while enjoying snacks, drinks, and music by KEXP DJ Larry Rose. The Brink Award supports rising regional visual artists “on the brink” of exceptional professional careers. (Wondering how you can be invited to awesome events like this?)
