SEATTLE, WA.- The Henry presents the first two exhibitions of their spring season.

Ilse Bing: Modern Photographer
May 2 - October 11

Between the late 1920s and the late 1950s, Ilse Bing (US, born Germany, 1899 – 1998) worked as an artist and commercial photographer in Germany, Paris, and New York. Self-taught, she became an early pioneer of shooting with the 35 mm Leica hand-held camera, creating bold architectural compositions and touching observations of everyday life.

Later in her career, Bing took up a larger format camera, the 2¼ inch Rolleiflex, and made large-scale abstractions of ordinary objects. Today, she is recognized as a key contributor to the development of modern photography. This exhibition presents a selection of 25 images that have been gifted to the Henry in recent years.

Ilse Bing: Modern Photographer is organized by Sylvia Wolf, John S. Behnke Director, in memory of Dr. Elaine Ranker Monsen. The exhibition is supported by ArtsFund and through generous gifts made to the Henry Now Campaign by the Barton Family Foundation in memory of Irving Marcus; Cathy and Michael Casteel; the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation; William and Ruth True; and the Bagley and Virginia Wright Fund.

Willem de Rooij: Bouquet XI
May 9 - August 16

Composed of flowers originating from the Middle East, Bouquet XI (2014) by Dutch artist Willem de Rooij (Netherlands, born 1969) occupies the Henry’s Test Site starting in May. The exuberance of the bouquet, which is created in collaboration with a local florist, is counterbalanced by an abundance of allergens produced by the flowers that allude to the complex history and conflicts in the Middle East.

Born in Beverwijk, the Netherlands, de Rooij’s floral sculptures are a playful, if rigorous, nod to Holland’s role as a major hub in the international flower trade, and the tradition of Dutch floral still-life painting. The artist lives and works in Berlin.

Willem de Rooij: Bouquet XI is organized by Luis Croquer, Deputy Director of Exhibitions, Collections, and Programs. The project is made possible with support from Henry Donor Circle members and season supporter ArtsFund. It is additionally supported through generous gifts made to the Henry Now Campaign by the Barton Family Foundation in memory of Irving Marcus; Cathy and Michael Casteel; the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation; William and Ruth True; and the Bagley and Virginia Wright Fund. Bouquet XI was originally commissioned and first presented in New York as part of the Jewish Museum series Using Walls, Floors, and Ceilings.
