  • Reframing Identity: From the UW Art Museum Collection

    On View through December 23, 2021

    In Reframing Identity, the UW Art Museum showcases works in the collection that allow for consideration of identity formation from a broad range of perspectives, beginning with the portrait and expanding out towards ideas of sexual, cultural, and regional identities, among others. The visual texts presented inspire reflection and consideration of how the concept of “self” is an amalgamation of internal and external forces that can be expressed in a multitude of ways. Viewers are encouraged to explore the specificities and generalities in the artworks, and to imagine new possibilities for self-articulation.

  • Pop Warriors: Lizabeth Eva Rossof's Imagined Excavation

    On view through March 19, 2022

    Playing with the concepts of appropriation and cultural exchange, Denver-based artist Lizabeth Eva Rossof creates figures modeled on the iconic 2,000-year-old terracotta warriors excavated in Xi’an, China, but replaces their heads with those of American pop culture characters like Mickey Mouse and Spiderman.

  • Something's Off: Paintings by Harold Garde and Ron Kroutel

    Through November 19, 2021

    The UW Art Museum brings together for the first time, paintings by two prolific artists: Harold Garde and Ron Kroutel. Both paint on a large scale and approach their work similarly as problems to be solved or questions to be answered, though their styles and methods are quite distinctive.
