A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
In response to SAM’s exhibition Elles: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou, Paris, SAM and a host of community partners are presenting Elles: Seattle. This project will galvanize our community around art, culture and societal issues that are important to women and celebrate the contributions women have made across a variety of sectors. Many of our community partners have developed related projects and programming to make this a city-wide effort.
Highlights from around the city include Seattle Theatre Group presenting “Voices of Strength,” a program of dance and theater created by African women living and working in Africa; the Henry Art Gallery exhibition of acclaimed video artist Pipilotti Rist in the exhibition A la belle étoile; and the Seattle Psychoanalytic Society and Institute hosting a conference titled “Images of Women,” exploring images of women in visual art, literature and clinical psychoanalysis.
We at She’s With Me will continue to highlight the local events and exhibitions connected to the SAM: Elles exhibit throughout the coming weeks, but if you’d like to go ahead and mark your calendar now, you can find a full list of community events here!
