Film Screening: Metropolis (1927) with live music by GRID

Friday, August 2, 7:00 - 9:00 pm

$5 Henry Members, UW Students, Staff, and Faculty 
$10 General Audience

Under the direction of Jen Gilleran, Seattle experimental music collective GRID will present a new live musical score to Fritz Lang’s iconic 1927 German Expressionist film, Metropolis. Set in a futuristic urban dystopia the film follows Johann Fredersen, the powerful mastermind and labor baron of Metropolis, his son Freder, and the virtuous Maria. Seeking to exploit Maria’s influence among her people, Fredersen commissions the scientist Rotwang to build a robot in her likeness through which he hopes to incite mass hysteria and control the city’s workers. At the last moment, Freder and the real Maria manage to foil his father’s plan and form a new civic utopia.

Family Sunday at the Henry

Spencer Finch

Family Sunday: Building Q U E S T
Sunday, August 11, 2:00 – 3:30 pm

Free for Members
$10 per family  

Have you ever created a tree house or a blanket fort? What kind of space did you create and what inspired you to do so? Join us as we explore works in the exhibition The Ghost of Architecture and think about habitability and structures. Bring your imagination and fort-making skills (real or imagined) as we consider the possibilities of how to transform the spaces that rule our lives.

Family Sundays at the Henry are especially designed for adults and children to learn and create together. Each month, inspired by art on view at the Henry, we’ll focus on different activities and new ways of immersing ourselves in the art. Family Sundays are best suited for elementary-aged children, but we encourage older or younger kids to join.
