Only two days left to get your tickets for Surveillance Cinema!

Don’t miss out on the Henry’s special screening and artist lecture with James Coupe this Thursday, August 11! Tickets are still available on Stranger Tickets.

In conjunction with the exhibition The Talent Show , on view from May 7, 2011 through August 21, The Henry Art Gallery invites you to join artist James Coupe for a screening and discussion of the artist’s recent work with ‘surveillance cinema’ in (re)collector, Surveillance Suite, and the web-based work Today, too, I experienced something I hope to understand in a few days. Read more about James Coupe and his work at the Henry’s event listing page…

You can see these video works and more at James Coupe’s website here.

Before you check out these works on the artist’s website and partake in his lecture Thursday night, check out this project overview video of Today, too, I experienced something I hope to understand in a few days:

Have your interests peaked yet? If you want to participate in work like this and get some pre-insight into James Coupe’s lecture, add this Facebook app to your page. You might see something familiar on I hope to Understand‘s YouTube channel.

Finally, for all you The Talent Show fans, “like” it on Facebook for up-to-date news on its concurrent events. Please note that by “liking” this page, you consent to having your photos used in conjecture with the exhibition. We felt this was highly appropriate for the themes of our show.

See you all Thursday night!

Check out Regina’s year-end review in the Seattle P-I with a shout out to Henry exhibitions and our new website:

“BEST MUSEUM WEB SITE: For usefulness, glamour and fun, the dazzling site of the Henry Art Gallery, henryart.org, makes all other museum Web sites in the region look like horse-and-buggy operations. Then there’s the art. The Henry cannot compete with SAM’s depth and ambition, but on its own contemporary turf the Henry edged out SAM for the best year, which isn’t always true. I loved “Liz Magor: The Mouth and Other Storage Facilities”; “Matthew Buckingham: Play the Story”; “The Violet Hour”, “Kader Attia: New Work”; and Jean-Luc Mylayne, photography’s master of anonymous bird portraits.”
