Thuy-Van Vu

Wed–Sat. Through April 26.

Thuy-Van Vu Thuy-Van Vu: Painted subjects appear precisely, surrounded by nothing but white space. She makes them very plain to see and very mysterious at the same time, representatives of worlds that have disappeared into fog. An open book in a glass case, remnants of a house, a dresser. The latest are all based on visits to museums, where dislocation is the name of the game. In some way, the Seattle artist’s work feels like it is always about the project of things (and maybe people, too) finding a home. Free.

Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders Danny Lyon: The Bikeriders: In the 1960s, American photographers and filmmakers like Diane Arbus, Larry Clark, and Danny Lyon turned toward the strange and the countercultural, producing pictures of what everybody else was wondering about. Lyons's series of black-and-white shots of bikers is a classic, and the Henry has just acquired a cache of them. The characters are charismatic and lost, frightening and lovable, and at least a little part of you wishes you were every one of them. $10 suggested.

Katinka Bock: A and I

Wed–Sun. Through May 4.

Katinka Bock: A and I Katinka Bock: A and I: Katinka Bock is an up-and-coming European sculptor whose sculptures are quiet and subtle in appearance, but internally busy with activity, sort of like shy people. They're art that's in more than one place at a time. A puzzle of black, square ceramic tiles laid on the floor is a map of a school hallway in France, where Bock placed a layer of raw ceramic on the floor, put carpet over it, let everybody walk on it as usual for a while, and then cut the ceramic into squares an... more » $10 suggested.
