The first retrospective of artist Doris Totten Chase (U.S., 1923 – 2008), this exhibition will include a selection of works created between 1956 and 2000 including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and videos. More prominently known in Seattle for her large kinetic public sculptures, Chase is also considered an early proponent of video art, beginning her work with the medium in the early 1970s. As early as 1968 she started recording dancers interacting with her sculptures. These early films were colorized and manipulated to disrupt time and filmic space. She later experimented with computer imaging at the Boeing Company, where emerging technology allowed her to expand the possibilities of image processing.

In the Henry Test Site, If You Don’t They Will presents video interviews with community organizers from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho that celebrate and recognize the breadth and diversity of their efforts to counter white nationalism. In the no. NOT EVER. installation, interview footage functions as a “living archive” rather than a linear documentary to create a participatory toolbox and intergenerational bridge for organizers who are working to resist the white nationalist social movement.
