Rodrigo Valenzuela's solo exhibition, Future Ruins, opened at the end of January at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle and runs through April 19, 2015. We are honored to show a subset of works on exhibition at the Frye at Upfor in March.

The Frye provides a lot of space, figuratively and literally, for the artist's ongoing, unfolding exploration of social issues (to name a few: migration, labor practice, income inequality and institutional critique). One of the things that so impresses curators and collectors about the artist's work is that Valenzuela tackles thorny moral and political questions while also delving without reservation into art historical, formal and artistic process investigations. And he never neglects our aesthetic response.
