Don’t be fooled by the title, this exhibit—the first curated by the Frye’s new deputy director Scott Lawrimore—is a showcase of visual art. Seattle gallery founders Charles and Emma Frye began collecting in 1907, the same year James Joyce published his first work, Chamber Music, a collection of 36 poems. Using the coincidence as a starting point and adding a twist, Lawrimore commissioned 36 local artists (including Sharold Arnold, Klara Glosova, Todd Jannausch, Greg Lundgren and Joey Veltkamp) to create new work based on musical compositions based on the poems. Expect more of this clever thinking from Lawrimore in his new post.
