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

Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, and Hesam Rahmanian work collectively to create installations and stop-motion animations that build on their perception of life as theater. Their first solo exhibition on the West Coast surveys the artists’ painterly interventions in internet news videos, which transform found footage into fantastical allegories of the present moment.

Tschabalala Self

Across paintings, sculptures, and videos, Tschabalala Self creates exuberant, multilayered “avatars” that resist reductive representations of blackness. The artist’s first solo museum presentation in the United States highlights her engagement with the intersectionality of race, gender, and sexuality, and the iconographic significance of the black female body in contemporary culture.

Frye Salon

Frye Salon features nearly one hundred fifty paintings from the Founding Collection with selected works acquired since the Museum opened in 1952. The installation approximates the dramatic viewing experience enjoyed by visitors to the art gallery in Charles and Emma Frye’s Seattle home in the first decades of the twentieth century.

We should be done by around 2 pm.  Those who wish to join for lunch on us afterwards (until around 2:45) will be welcome, or if you need to get back to campus you will be free to leave sooner.
