Frye Art Museum First Hill
Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 4 2018
Recommended by Emily Pothast
The Frye continues its outstanding track record of programming multimedia investigations of identity, tradition, and history with Alison Marks's first solo museum exhibition. Rejecting the notion that Native art must function spiritually to be considered legitimate, Marks uses unexpected materials and imagery drawn from contemporary internet culture to reimagine customary Tlingit forms as something fluid, playful, and made with whatever materials are available. Through her work, Marks constantly asserts that "culture is not stagnant"—new mediums create an ongoing context for new forms.
