FlotsamJetsamLagan: The Oneness is a collection of works on paper, created over a span of seven years. Presented as a unified body, these seemingly disparate works represent various curiosities, experiments, precursors, and oddities of Griffith's practice. As a whole, this grouping favors exploration over consistency, and embraces both successes and failures as one.

For Chamber Music, the Frye Art Museum has commissioned thirty-six Seattle artists to create new work in response to musical compositions based on James Joyce’s volume of poetry of the same name. The artists included in Chamber Music span generations and reflect a broad aesthetic spectrum. What unites them is a shared dedication to artist-generated activities that strengthen Seattle’s arts community beyond their own admirable art practices. Chamber Music is thus both a celebration of individual mark-making and a cooperative composition about love for this city and how artists choose to leave their mark on it.
