DESCRIPTION

CoCA Legacy celebrates a star-studded past and inspiring future

On Thursday, October 5, 2017, Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) presents “CoCA Legacy” featuring ​​a​ ​small​ ​selection​ ​of​ ​influential​ ​artists​ ​from​ ​the​ ​hundreds​ ​of​ ​significant contemporary​ ​artists​ it has​ ​had​ ​the​ ​pleasure​ ​of​ ​working​ ​with​ ​in its​ ​rich 36-year history in Seattle.

Since its ​inception​ ​in​ ​1981, a ​robust​ ​creativity​ ​has​ ​shaped​ CoCA’s ​legacy,​ ​community,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​ongoing​ ​notion​ ​of​ ​what contemporary​ ​art​ ​is​ ​to​ ​the​ ​region​ ​and​ ​world.​ ​The​ ​exhibition​ seeks to ​celebrate​ ​the​ ​diverse​ ​range​ ​of​ ​artists​ ​that represent​ CoCA’s legacy ​best:​ those who are ​fiercely​ ​independent​ ​and​ ​experimental,​ ​with​ ​an​ ​unapologetically​ ​rough hewn​ ​nature,​ ​and often​ with an​ ​equally​ ​bold​ ​political​ ​statement.​

While CoCA has served hundreds of artists in 36 years, visitors are invited to​ ​relive​ ​a​ ​small​ ​slice​ ​of​ CoCA’s ​best​ ​and brightest in this retrospective exhibition. The exhibition will ​include work from notable artists such as Laurie Anderson, James Turrell, Paul Rucker, Mary Ann Peters, Gary Hill, Juan Alonso-Rodriguez, Alice Wheeler, Doug Jeck, Judith Kindler, Michael Spafford and Elizabeth Sandvig among others.

In sharing this experience, co-curators, CoCA Executive Director, Nichole DeMent, and CoCA Board of Directors Member, Joseph Roberts, hope not only to celebrate its robust archives and ​the​ pedigree ​of​ ​Contemporary​ ​Art​ ​in​ ​Seattle, but also to catalyze CoCA’s future legacy of—as the name suggests and as this exhibition will showcase—Seattle’s epicenter on contemporary art.

Located at CoCA 114 3rd Ave. S Seattle, WA 98104, the show opens on October 5 and runs through November 18, 2017. For more information please visit cocaseattle.org.

CoCA Legacy is made possible with support from 4Culture, Greg Kucera Gallery, Traver Gallery and Elysian Brewing.
