Group Therapy


Frye Art Museum First Hill
Sept 14, 2018–Jan 6, 2019, Tuesdays–Sundays


Recommended by Katie Kurtz

Group Therapy features a roster of international artists addressing themes of healing and self-care through a range of media. With its proximity to Harborview Medical Center (the region’s largest trauma care hospital) and several other hospitals, the museum will also function as a community “free clinic” with immersive installations and participatory projects. By including racism, sexism, and political tribalism as social pathologies, the show reframes what it means to be ill in the 21st century and offers community building as one possible curative. Artists include Wynne Greenwood, Maryam Jafri, Joachim Koester, Liz Magic Laser, Leigh Ledare, Marcos Lutyens, Cindy Mochizuki, Shana Moulton, Pedro Reyes, Ann Leda Shapiro, Kandis Williams, and Lauryn Youden. Special events will include tarot & palm readings by Cindy Mochizuki, an art therapy workshop on November 4, and a curative drama "political therapy" workshop on November 10 & 11 with Liz Magic Laser and Valerie Bell.
