Henry Art Gallery
Northeast Seattle, Seattle

Viewpoints is a rotating series that highlights artwork from the Henry's collection, paired with commentary and insights from members of the University of Washington community. This iteration of Viewpoints presents paintings by Amanda Ross-Ho (b. 1975, Chicago, IL) with photographs by Marsha Burns (b. 1945, Seattle, WA) and Justine Kurland (b. 1969, Warsaw, NY) that explore self-expression and identity formation during adolescence. Double Dare Ya, the exhibition’s title, refers to the 1992 Bikini Kill song of the same name in which Kathleen Hanna addresses girls in her audience directly, “Dare ya to do what you want, dare ya to be who you will, dare ya to cry right out loud.”

The community contributors for this iteration of Viewpoints are Kari Lerum, Associate Professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at UW Bothell; Debi Talukdar, PhD candidate from the College of Education at UW Seattle; and Ilah Walker, an undergraduate student at the UW Seattle campus and former Henry Teen Art Collective member.
