Friday May 19th-   Marwencol

On April 8, 2000, Mark Hogancamp was attacked by five men and left for dead outside of a bar in Kingston, NY. After nine days in a coma, he awoke to find he had no memory of his previous adult life. He had to relearn how to eat, walk and write. 

When his state-sponsored rehabilitative therapies ran out, Mark took his recovery into his own hands. In his backyard, he created a new world entirely within his control - a 1:6 scale World War II town he named Marwencol. Using doll alter egos of his friends and family, his attackers and himself, Mark enacted epic battles and recreated memories, which he captured in strikingly realistic photographs. Those photos eventually caught the eye of the art world, which lead to a series of gallery exhibitions, the award-winning documentary "Marwencol," the acclaimed book "Welcome to Marwencol," and a new identity for a man once ridiculed for playing with dolls. 

Saturday June 3rd - Cameraperson

A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage captured over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson.

Saturday June 10th-  Endless Poetry 

ENDLESS POETRY portrays Alejandro Jodorowsky's young adulthood, set in the 1940s and 50s, in the electric capital city of Santiago. There, he decides to become a poet and is introduced, by destiny, into the foremost bohemian and artistic circle of the time. He meets Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra and many others of the country's young, promising and unknown artists who would later become the titans of Latin America's literature. ENDLESS POETRY is a tale of poetic experimentation; the story of a unique youth that lived as not many before them had dared: sensually, authentically, freely, madly.

Opening Reception- Romson Regarde Bustillo: Kingdom of Prophets

The foundation of much of what I do is in printmaking, mixed media, and space coding. Transdisciplinary, my work is nourished by research. The tools we use to process information and the moments tied to our understandings help shape my vocabulary. Images and marks become visual cues to narratives, questions, and observations. 

I make prints; a combination of collagraphs, intaglio, relief, and serigraphy forming recent works. The vast majority are monoprints, each pulled from multiple master plates made from diverse surfaces.  

Bio
Born in the Philippines, Romson Regarde Bustillo immigrated to Seattle with his family in 1978. He has spent extended periods of time working on his art in Spain, Mexico, and the Philippines; as well as research work in S.E. Asia and Central America. He maintains an art studio in the Central District of Seattle. Locally, his work is represented in the collections of the City of Seattle, the City of Tacoma, the City of Portland(RACC), Washington State Art Commission, ArtColl Trust, ACRS, and the Wing Luke Asian Museum.


The show will run from April 2nd -May 13th
Opening Reception- April 2nd 4-7PM
Artist Talk - April 9th 5-7PM
Tacoma Artist Walk- April 20th 6-9PM

Support for this exhibit is provided by:

5:00 pm17:00

Talk with Marilyn and Elliat: queer, women, filmmakers, friends.

Join us for a reflection upon the journey of two active female lesbian/queer filmmakers who have shared a supportive relationship for 16 years. Marilyn Freeman and Elliat Graney-Saucke, both 2016 Artist Trust Fellowship grantees, met in Olympia, Wa in 2001 on the set of "Group," a feature film by Marilyn and her partner Anne de Marcken, where Elliat was a production assistant through a high school internship. Speed forward 15+ years, Marilyn and Elliat are both still powering forward in their filmmaking and still in each others lives. This talk will explore their shared histories and the developments of their bodies of work.

Elliat Graney-Saucke is based in Seattle, WA, after living in Berlin, Germany from 2009-2015, and is completing her second feature documentary film "Boys on the Inside" about 'boy' identity in women's prisons. Elliat is currently Media Documentation Research Lead for the National Performance Network as well as serving as President of the Seattle Documentary Association and steering committee member of S.A.L.T. (Seattle Arts Leadership Team - Office of Arts and Culture), Next Generation National Arts Network and the Women's Working Group. Elliat has produced a body of over 20 short films with work screening in over thirteen countries. With additional film/creative projects in the works, she is as well the new Managing Director of the media communications agency Elliat Creative. 

Marilyn Freeman is based in Olympia, WA and has most recently coined and created a body of work under the philosophy and creative-spiritual frame of CinemaDivina. Her most recently long-term project is the decade long feature narrative "Sophisticated: The Hollywood Story of Miss Dorothy Arzner," about the early Hollywood lesbian film director. Her notable early work includes "Group" and "Meeting Magdalene." Marilyn has also been a media arts instructor at The Evergreen State College and is currently Director of state based media productions for Washington.

This event is being presented in partnership with Artist Trust, who awarded Marilyn and Elliat awards through their 2016 Fellowship.

Opening for "Invisible Ink"

Join us for the opening reception, 6-9pm, Thursday, January 19th. Conversation with Anne de Marcken & Natasha Marin at 6:30.

In "Invisible Ink," interdisciplinary artist Anne de Marcken invites spectators to participate actively in an interrogation of invisibility and privilege that moves beyond the white-walled gallery space into real world action…that in fact helps to reimagine the real world as the art world and action as art.

Working in collaboration with conceptual artist Natasha Marin and writer Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, de Marcken orchestrates and participates in the transmutation of digital artifacts into the most basic of material elements in order to create a hyper-deliberate, sensual, embodied experience of privilege and accountability in visitors to the installation.

Writing in lemon juice—homemade invisible ink—on butcher paper, de Marcken transcribes a digital backlog of requests for help, offers of support, and assaultive troll attacks received by Marin during her six-month "Reparations" project. The result is a 1000-foot-long enunciation of the ways whiteness protects those affiliated with its power from awareness of and accountability for the costs and benefits of that artificial construction. Participants are invited to iron out the lemon juice messages, enacting the process of making need and harm visible…and are then invited to go farther: to take simple actions to meet need and remedy harm by responding materially to the original messages.

Sycamore's two-channel audio piece provides an atmospheric score for the installation, with loops of appropriated media sound-bites featuring hypocritical words of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
