Frye Art Museum says
In the midst of numerous wars, besieged by aggressive environmental transformation and natural resource exploitation, and on the brink of another possible economic recession, how do we begin to create and advance a critical discourse that accurately describes twenty-first century art practice? This three-part discussion will examine some of the defining issues of the first two decades of the twenty-first century at the global, national, and local levels and the impact they have on artists in terms of how they work and what they create. Artists included in the exhibition 'To: Seattle | Subject: Personal' will join professionals from various disciplines to contextualize issues such as climate change, economic recession, and the recent US presidential elections, and the ways in which artists are experiencing these phenomena and how they transmit these notions through their work.
