About the exhibition
SEEING NOW is a multi-media exploration of the visible and hidden forces shaping both what the contemporary world looks like, and how we consume and interpret that information—how visual and psychological perception are evolving in the 21st century.
About the artist
Paul Rucker is a visual artist, composer, and musician who combines media, often integrating live performance, sound, original compositions, and visual art. His work is the product of a rich interactive process, through which he investigates community impacts, human rights issues, historical research, and basic human emotions surrounding a subject. Rucker has received numerous grants, awards, and residencies for visual art and music, including a Creative Capital Foundation grant, a 10-week residency at Headlands Center for the Arts in California, the Conductive Garboil Grant, and others. He was awarded Best Emerging Artist as well as Outside Jazz Ensemble of the Year by Earshot Jazz, and Jazz Artist of the Year by the Seattle Music Awards. Rucker’s visual art has been exhibited in public spaces and museums throughout the US, including the Museum of Flight, Seattle; the city of Tacoma; and the Baltimore Museum of Art, where his solo exhibition, Rewind, was presented in 2015.
