Located on Seattle’s First Hill, the Frye Art Museum showcases works from the Frye Founding Collection of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century European paintings, and notable exhibitions of works by internationally renowned and emerging contemporary artists.
To Dec 31
REPRESENTING: Amie Siegel, and artists of the Frye Collection including Matt Browning, Arthur Bowen Davies, Ludwig Dill, Nikolai Nikanorovich Dubovskoi, Nicolai Fechin, Alexander Max Koester, Gabriel von Max, Rosalyn Gale Powell, Dániel Somogyi, Franz von Stuck, and Andrew Wyeth.
Manuel Álvarez Bravo: Mexico’s Poet of Light. The artist spent nearly eight decades, from the 1920s-90s, photographing his native Mexico. His photographs established a distinct visual identity for his home country.
Hana Hamplová: Meditations on Paper. During the 1970s, Hamplová created this body of photographic work based on the importance of paper and the written word to civilization.
Mike Kelley: Day Is Done. A feature-length musical-film hybrid, is one of Kelley’s signature constructions and exemplifies the artist’s desire to expose the collective unconscious of American society.
Nov 11-Feb 4 Alison Marks: One Gray Hair. In her first solo exhibition, Alison Marks creates contemporary multimedia works using customary Tlingit forms, unexpected materials, and a wry sense of humor.
Jan 27-Apr 15 Tavares Strachan: Always, Sometimes, Never, brings the work of New York-based conceptual artist Tavares Strachan to Seattle for the first time. A selection of Strachan’s diverse explorations of nature and technology will be provocatively installed within and alongside reflecting pools, highlighting his signature fascination with perception, distortion, and invisibility.
Ongoing Frye Salon, a restaging of the Founding Collection as it was installed in the home gallery of Charles and Emma Frye.
