Cris Bruch | Others Who Were Here
Edited by Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker
This beautifully photographed catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition, Cris Bruch: Others Who Were Here, documents a new body of work by the multi-award-winning Seattle artist Cris Bruch. It features an essay by Frye Director Jo-Anne Birnie Danzker that provides historic information on the Great Plains, illuminating Bruch’s exploration of his family’s roots as dryland farmers in eastern Colorado during the first half of the twentieth century. The catalogue also contains rich full-page reproductions of the installations and sculptural works in the exhibition that address the durability of hope in the face of obsolescence and decay.
