Frye Art Museum | Amie Siegel: Interiors
DATE: Thursday, July 13th
TIME: 2:00 PM
LOCATION: 704 Terry Ave(map)
New York-based artist Amie Siegel works between film, photography, performance, and installation. In her solo exhibition Interiors, she investigates ideas about objects and their perceived cultural value, and the power systems innate to connoisseurship and museum practice. Through the complex, meticulously constructed works that are her signature,
she explores how hierarchies of ownership, care, and display—constructs of the human mind as well as the museum—
implicate institution, audience, and artist alike.
Seattle Art Museum | General Exhibition Pass
DATE: Wednesday, July 19th

With this new installation of SAM’s collection of Northwest Coast art, visitors will encounter the creative expressions of generations of artists who created forms for daily life, for potlatch ceremonies, and for spiritual balance. The presence of contemporary arts, shown alongside historical forms, highlight the vitality of traditions that are being re-envisioned for present times.
