The Frye Museum is now home to the Michael Brown/Ferguson, Mo.-inspired  “Modicum,” an installation by the very interesting Galanin Brothers (Nicholas and Jerrod) of Sitka, Alaska. (Nicholas Galanin has works in the current Frye show ending Sept. 14, “Your Feast has Ended,” along with pieces by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes and Nep Sidhu.) According to Jen Graves at The Stranger, “Modicum,” which comprises a mannequin, riot gear, red paint and disposable coffee cups with names of people of color killed by U.S. law enforcement, was removed from the Bumbershoot visual-arts pavilion shortly before the fest started because of the “blood” on the installation. The substance is actually red paint mixed with vegetable oil; some Seattle Center folks were reportedly not pleased about it pooling on their floor. An “addition” to the installation was suggested to protect the floor, the artists were not pleased with that nor what they perceived as disregard for their mission on the part of the show’s organizer, and the piece was taken down.

“Modicum” will be up until Sept. 21 at the Frye. Curtis Barnes’ “The Unicorn Incorporated” ends Sept. 21 at The Frye as well.
