Upcoming Exhibitions

The Rain Doesn’t Know Friends From Foes: Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian

Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, and Hesam Rahmanian create works on paper and animations that interrogate the voyeuristic role of the mass media spectator. Their first solo exhibition on the West Coast surveys the artists’ painterly interventions in internet news imagery, which foreground the irrationality and violence underlying our mediated reality.

January 26–April 28, 2019

Tschabalala Self

In collage-paintings, sculptures, and video installations, Tschabalala Self creates multilayered “avatars” that resist reductive representations of blackness and the norms of portraiture. The artist’s first solo museum presentation on the West Coast highlights her engagement with the intersectionality of race, gender, and sexuality, and the iconographic significance of the black body in contemporary culture.

Cherdonna Shinatra: DITCH

Combining contemporary dance, drag, and clowning, Seattle-based artist Jody Kuehner defies categorization through her persona Cherdonna Shinatra. DITCH will create an immersive environment activated by daily performances that aim to spread joy to counteract the dismal state of the world, and the continual fragmentation and subjugation of femme and queer identities.
