The Henry Art Gallery is pleased to announce the museum’s 2022 exhibitions. Anchored in the Henry’s mission to engage all people in the transformative power of contemporary art and ideas, this year's exhibitions continue to amplify artists' diverse voices as well as explore more expansive ways to highlight under-recognized stories, histories, and truths.

The poignant awareness of our bodies together or absent in public space is drawn out both in a major new commission by Donna Huanca and in Space Between, a thematic photography selection from the Henry collection. Meanwhile intimacy—scaled from the diminutive to the vast—is explored in new projects by ektor garcia and Chloë Bass. The myriad ways we form and reform identity and find ourselves in the physical and psychological world are seen through the focused lens of Double Dare Ya: Burns, Kurland, & Ross-Ho, as well as through the thematic approach of the moving image installations in everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

Exhibitions will be activated through a wide range of programs, online and/or in-person as allowed. Together, the Henry's exhibitions and programs aim to provide a platform for cross-disciplinary dialogue, both within the museum and in the greater community.
