The Gift Shop was a series of collaborative exhibitions staged in the Henry Art Gallery's museum gift shop of Seattle. Oranizer Matthew Offenbacher with these exhibitions asks the questions: What can an art exhibition do? How can artists work together? Who is the audience for an art exhibition? What responsibilities do artists have towards their audience? What responsibilites do audiences have? What is the relationship between artists and the institutions who support them? What can we learn from each other?
