Space Between: Photographs from the Collection

Through May 29 | Henry Art Gallery

Featuring a selection of work from the Henry Art Gallery’s extensive photography collection, the photographs in this exhibition represent spaces emptied of the people they were created for, leaving behind scenes that evoke a palpable absence of what or who should be there. This absence renders familiar spaces strange, distancing them from their intended purposes. Sensations of suspension, interruption, and alienation surface in this gap between form and function in works by Lynne CohenDavid Hartt, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Juan Uslé.

Life in One Cubic Foot

Through July 17 | Burke Museum

From Seattle’s Seward Park to a coral reef in the South Pacific, the Burke Museum‘s Life in One Cubic Foot reveals the diversity of nature and inspires visitors to become community scientists. 

What can you discover in just one cubic foot? As it turns out, a whole lot! Biocube samples—the life within one cubic foot of soil or water over one day—capture enough variation to explore the complexity of entire ecosystems. Most of the world’s biodiversity occurs at small scales: organisms hidden in leaf litter, under river rocks, and in the nooks and crannies of environments.
