Press Statement

Vital 5 Productions has a long history of championing contemporary art in the Pacific Northwest. Since the mid-1990s, we have been producing exhibits, events, experiments and creative content that celebrates all that makes our region so dynamic, original, and largely out of sight. When we heard about Vulcan producing the first annual Seattle Art Fair in the summer of 2015, it was almost immediate that we wanted to support the fair and harness the international attention the fair will bring to Seattle. From this energy emerged a new exhibition opening July 30th in the historic King Street Station.

Vital 5 is proud to present Out of Sight, a 24,000 square foot survey of contemporary art in the Pacific Northwest. Just a stone’s throw from the Seattle Art Fair (happening at the Centurylink Convention Center during the same weekend), Out of Sight occupies the entirety of the third floor – a raw, industrial space that has until this time, never been open to the public.

Curated by Kirsten Anderson, Sharon Arnold, Greg Lundgren and Sierra Stinson, Out of Sight showcases over 80 emerging and mid-career artists, bringing what we believe is the largest survey of contemporary art happening in the region. Both in scale, proximity and premise, Out of Sight is a bold and audacious exhibit, designed to recognize the immense talent and creativity that our region harbors, and the under-recognized creative capital of our community.

Join us Thursday, July 30 at 7:00 pm for an early preview and grand opening celebration, or visit the exhibition Friday and Saturday from noon to 8:00 pm and Sunday 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. The Hideout will be providing happy hour service on location from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm Friday and Saturday nights, and a Swedish pancake brunch will take place 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Sunday, August 2.
