Next Exhibit

Cabin Fever

A little bit of the frontier comes to First Avenue

A pair of two-man (two-brother, to be precise) exhibits explore temporary shelters, found objects, and utopian architecture. Parallel to their ongoing exhibit at Howard House (through May 31), Oscar Tuazon and Eli Hansen are launching SAM’s promising new Northwest-focused series, “Next,” curated by Michael Darling. For this exhibit, the two have constructed an installation piece named Kodiak, an architectural object (on view through October 26) with a double situated on the Alaskan island. In the past, the Tacoma-born siblings have collaborated using glass and other media to render structures that may seem variously primitive or ideal. This installation offers two views of such invented edifices, one located in a gallery, and another in the wilderness. The pair will elaborate on their work in a lecture next month (SAM’s Nordstrom Lecture Hall, Fri. May 2, 6:30 p.m.). Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Ave., 644-3100, www.seattleartmuseum.org. $16. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ADRIANA GRANT

Sun., April 27, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2008
