This exhibition will be the first showing of the French-Algerian artist’s work in the Pacific Northwest and his first large-scale solo exhibition in the U.S. Through his new sculptural work and a two-channel video installation Attia will explore the relationship between volume and emptiness, dream and reality, wealth and poverty, power and weakness.

Curated for the Henry by Chief Curator Elizabeth Brown.
Kader Attia: New Work was presented with generous support from ArtsFund; 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax; and Consulat Général de France à San Francisco, Service Culturel. In-kind media partnership provided by Seattle Weekly.
