You may think that a teeny group of writers at The Stranger chooses the Genius Award winners every year, but that’s not how it works. We put out three nominees in each of five categories: visual art, performance, literature, music, and film. Then every single person who’s ever won a Genius Award votes on the winners. So the Frye’s exhibition of more than 60 visual artists, filmmakers, fiction and nonfiction writers, graphic novelists, actors, set designers, directors, composers, musicians, choreographers, dancers, and organizations devoted to the arts in Seattle is actually a pretty good and epic survey of 21st-century art production in this city at this time. And whoa. Genius includes 20 commissions, five premieres, a literary festival, a film and video art festival, a new work from Pacific Northwest Ballet, a new record by Industrial Revelation, a documentary film-in-progress from Kabul by James Longley, and manymanymany more art objects, pictures, events, sounds, talks, and manifestos. What’s on display will change continuously over the 16-week run—but because admission to the Frye is free, anybody can just keep on taking in what artists are putting out. JEN GRAVES
