Jessica Craig-Martin

Mon–Sat. Through April 17.

Jessica Craig-Martin Jessica Craig-Martin: Craig-Martin's high-contrast photos are the savage leavings of society parties, cropped with morning-after cruelty. This photographer does gossip-page work for Vanity Fair and Vogue, as well as atmospheric, journalistic stuff, but her museum and gallery shows (this is her first at Winston Wächter) are closer to satire.

Thuy-Van Vu

Wed–Sat. Through April 26.

Thuy-Van Vu Thuy-Van Vu: Painted subjects appear precisely, surrounded by nothing but white space.

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.
