Kader & Hélène Attia dinner party

Kader and Hélène Attia, along with Elizabeth Brown and Paul Thorpe, joined Liis and me for dinner in our home on Monday, February 25, 2008. Kader Attia, a terrific young artist, has roots in Algeria and France; he and his wife Hélène currently reside in Paris.

Kader was on a month-long stay in Seattle, creating installations comprising part of an exhibition of his work that opened at the Henry Art Gallery on February 29. Elizabeth Brown, a curator at the Henry Art Gallery, was instrumental in bringing this exhibition to Seattle. Paul Thorpe is a carpenter and Elizabeth’s friend.
