Bambitchell: Dolphins, ships and other vessels
March 18, 12:00 – 1:30 PM | Online
In this performance reading, hosted by the Henry Art Gallery, artist duo Bambitchell continue their exploration of the legal frameworks that govern non-human animals and objects, moving from the territorial jurisdictions explored in their film Bugs & Beasts Before the Law (2019), to the legal realm of the sea. Dolphins, ships and other vessels is a polyvocal narrative that spans bodies of water. Stretching from Te Moana-o-Raukawa, to the South China Sea, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the Clyde and Kaniatarowanenneh Rivers, the narrative traces the disappearance and reappearance of a dolphin, the reincarnations of ships, and the embodiments of Jinn—as vessels, mammals, water, myth, and law.

UW Dance Presents
Streaming through March 28 | Online
The Department of Dance is excited to present new works from nationally and internationally recognized choreographers Rujeko Dumbutshena, Alana Isiguen, Rachael Lincoln, Juliet McMains, “Majinn” Mike O’Neal, and Jennifer Salk, with guest artists Alex Dugdale and Alice Gosti.
Presented digitally, these explorations of dance on film examine themes ranging from human connection and identity to the joy of rhythm and music as movement. The new works, generated from a diverse range of movement styles, feature dancers set against local Seattle backdrops including Magnuson Park and on stage at Meany Center for the Performing Arts. The performances feature new collaborations and several original music compositions, including by Zimbabwean-born local Seattle artist Paul Mataruse and compositions by UW music students Griffin Becker and Lucas Zeiter performed by the University of Washington Wind Ensemble.

Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle questions the stories we’ve been told by amplifying narratives that have been systematically overlooked from America’s history. This exhibition reunites Lawrence’s revolutionary 30-panel series Struggle: From the History of the American People (1954–56) for the first time since 1958, and Seattle Art Museum will be its only West Coast venue. These modernist paintings chronicle pivotal moments from the American Revolution through to westward expansion and feature Black, female, and Native protagonists as well as the founders of the United States. Lawrence interprets the democratic debates that defined the early nation and echoed into the civil rights movements during which he was painting the Struggle series. Works by contemporary artists Derrick Adams, Bethany Collins, and Hank Willis Thomas engage themes of democracy, justice, truth, and the politics of inclusion to show that the struggle for expansive representation in America continues.
