When the storyteller steps into the story, everything changes.
Northwest artist and theorist Ted Hiebert is back again with his gorgeous large scale photographic images and questions that mix ritual, myth, wit and technology to prod the imagination. The outsized photographs–a visual treat not to be missed–show the artist cloaked in wolf skin and story as he expands the werewolf series he introduced last year.
Join us at Shift, September’s First Thursday/Seattle/Pioneer Square for an artist reception with Ted, as well as the opportunity to satisfy your adventurous curiosity. Orange rabbits, werewolves, myth and conversation–come ‘n get it.
