ArtSci Roundup: Strange Coupling Exhibition, The Color of Law, and more

During this time of uncertainty and isolation, find solace in digital opportunities to connect, share, and engage. Each week, we will share upcoming events that bring the UW, and the greater community, together online. 

Many of these online opportunities are streamed through Zoom. All UW faculty, staff, and students have access to Zoom Pro via UW-IT

Strange Coupling 2020 Exhibition Launch

View at your leisure | Online

Strange Coupling has been a student-run tradition in the School of Art + Art History + Design since 2002. It brings together the UW and the greater Seattle art community by pairing students with professional artists for a collaborative art project of their choice. This year, Strange Coupling’s theme for the exhibition is Memory. Each of the works produced by this year’s couplings speak to memory — as a place or an experience, fragmented or weighty, out of touch or within reach.
