On December 5, Seattle gains a new nonprofit arts center created by billionaire Paul Allen, the businessman and philanthropist who's also a major blue-chip art collector (and creator of Seattle Art Fair). The first exhibition, The Figure in Process, contains 20 works—a handful owned by Allen and the rest borrowed from around the world. Pivot head Ben Heywood commissioned eminent British curator David Anfam, a specialist in American abstract expressionism, to put together The Figure in Process, which features works by giants and lesser-knowns both. (Giants: Francis Bacon, Lucien Freud, David Hockney, Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti, Anish Kapoor.) Like the summer art fair, which drew 12,000 people, this will be a spectacle to watch for all kinds of reasons, from the purely artistic to the anthropological. JEN GRAVES
