This is the first time the Frye has ever fully plugged in—its first digitally controlled immersive installation. The piece is Susie J. Lee’s 2007 work Rain Shower, first presented at Lawrimore Project, where it turned the space into a flickering weather event presided over by a barely audible dialogue of whispers. Why now with this particular piece, and how has it been for the museum still best known for its collection of 19th-century German paintings with chunky gilt frames? Lee, a past Stranger Genius Award winner, talks with Robin Held, the departing curator who led the transformation that brought the Frye to this moment.
