Learn more about how his philosophy has helped guide his work through a global health crisis and renewed national attention to racial justice.
June 3 – July 8 | Jacob Lawrence Gallery
the Jacob Lawrence Gallery proudly presents Queer imagination, a group exhibition curated by Brittney Frantece, recipient of the 2021 Gallery Curatorial Fellowship for BIPOC Graduate Students. Queer imagination asks: how can creative works distort material realities and build a world that explores new ways of being, thinking and knowing?
The exhibition features works by the Portland-based set designer August oaks and four artists and scholars from the University of Washington: writer and graduate student in English Rasheena fountain, poet Nanya Jingran, graduated in 2019 with an MA in English, photographer Berette S Macaulay, and illustrator and painter Meshell Sturgis. Together, they offer a glimpse into a world ruled by violent logic and envision ways to drastically distort, displace, redesign, or burn down that world.

This small exhibit takes you on a tour of Washington State as fossils come to life through the art of scientific surrealism Ray troll. Peculiar-looking fish, a formidable gigantic salmon and a very unlucky rhino all make an appearance.
