SEATTLE, WA.- On November 4, the Henry opened The Time. The Place. Contemporary Art from the Collection, a museum-wide exhibition presenting a selection of artworks that have entered the Henry’s contemporary collection in the last two decades. More than half of the works are being exhibited at the Henry for the first time.

Ranging in media from video installation to photography and from sculpture to drawing, the approximately 50 works represent a multi-national roster of artists including Miguel Calderón, Raymond Boisjoly, David Hartt, Richard Long, Tracey Moffat, An-My Lê, Shirin Neshat, Kori Newkirk, Lorna Simpson, Allan Sekula, Buster Simpson, and Eve Sussman.

Across diverse, yet intersecting threads, these works explore and challenge conditions and events of contemporary life. They take viewers from domestic interiors to the streets of protest, from the site of a failed modernist housing project to the galleries of an anthropological museum, and from a Vietnam War reenactment to the rooms of a gay bathhouse rendered from memory.

The Time. The Place. probes the cultural, economic, political, historical, and personal dynamics that give meaning to place. Throughout the exhibition, the past lives in the present as an active agent to confront and contest.

“In addition to engaging place as a site that can be located in time and space, works in the exhibition also address place as a condition of being,” says Nina Bozicnik, associate curator at the Henry. “Works in the exhibition pose existential questions that evoke feelings of belonging and displacement.”

This exhibition is organized on the occasion of the Henry’s ninetieth anniversary, and in celebration of a twenty-year period in the museum’s history marked by a reaffirmed commitment to holding space for contemporary art and ideas.

The Time. The Place. Contemporary Art from the Collection opened on November 4. The lower level galleries close on March 25 and the upper level galleries will remain open until April 22.
