    Memento: Selected Works from the Elwood Collections

    Spanning 50 years from 1968 to 2018, the Sean Elwood Collections total over 300 objects across three distinct groupings. Originally established through a single donation of prints, the collection has grown to include examples of 20th and 21st century photography, drawings, video, documentation, and cultural ephemera. Highlights include works by renowned Northwest artists such as Fay Jones, Michael Spafford and Jacob Lawrence, as well as by nationally and internationally known artists, such as Robert Mangold, Joseph Beuys, Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. Organized thematically, the exhibition offers reflections on key content areas such as minimalist gestures, performative works, non-normative narratives, as well as social satire and justice. Sept. 18-June 29, 2019; open Tue-Sat 10 am-4 pm (closed holidays/WSU breaks). Exhibit reception with Sean Elwood on Sept. 20 from 4:30-6:30 pm. 509-335-1910

    Kate Gilmore: In Your Way

    In Your Way features 10 works — nine performance-based videos and one live performance/sculptural installation — by this New York-based artist known for synthesizing multiple artistic mediums including performance, video, sculpture and painting. In her videos, Gilmore critiques and also inserts herself into male dominated movements such as Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, exploring feminist themes and modern and contemporary art tropes, all the while exhibiting relentless determination. Oct. 16-Dec. 22; open Tue-Sat 10 am-4 pm (closed holidays, WSU breaks). Artist talk and performance Oct. 18 from 4:30-6:30 pm. 509-335-1910

    Trimpin: Ambiente432

    The museum commissioned Trimpin, a ground-breaking composer and sculptor who has lived and worked in Seattle since 1979, to design and create a major new work for the WSU community. Ambiente432 is a site-responsive installation exploring the sound-space continuum, demonstrating how an architectural environment may coexist and harmonize with a kinetic sound sculpture. Like much of his previous work, this installation combines Trimpin’s research in musical, acoustical, and sound sculpture design, joining music scores and kinetics with computer technology. Ongoing through 2019; open Tue-Sun 10 am-4 pm (closed during holidays, WSU breaks). 509-335-1910
