More from Our Arts Guide
There’s a sense of caution that immediately overtakes anyone who steps into the Porcelain Room at Seattle Art Museum, which is interesting given that porcelain is actually hella strong. Featured artist Claire Partington even told me it bounces. Don’t knock anything over, though. Partington’s site-specific installation features six ceramic figures, each with its own story to tell about the history of international trade, gender, empire, slavery, and conspicuous consumption. Her use of material and symbolism connects her work with many pieces already in the room, activating the gallery in a way that feels fresh and immersive. JASMYNE KEIMIG

This exhibit opened in December 2018, but SAM has been closed since March and will reopen to the public on September 11, 2020.
