Opening at SAM: John Akomfrah

March 5 - May 3
Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Ave
Seattle,WA98101United States
+ Google Map

From SAM: Weaving a tapestry of moving images, John Akomfrah’s video essays address the questions of our time in an exhibition unlike any before at SAM. Future History brings together three examples of his art that convey a provocative vision of the past, present, and future. Akomfrah combines stunning scenery, archival footage, literary texts, and original interviews. His montages encourage new ways of looking at history and imagining the future. SAM’s galleries are transformed into screening rooms and interactive spaces where Akomfrah’s work takes you from the 15th to the 21st century through three videos that must be seen on the big screen. The elaborate staging of Tropikos (36 min) conveys encounters between the British and people from Africa in the 16th century before the slave trade began. Vertigo Sea (48 min) presents three screens to lyrically explore the sea’s incomprehensible grandeur in our current moment on the verge of climate crisis. The Last Angel of History (45 min) follows a data thief’s voyage to find the keys to the future by listening to artists and explorers. Ghana-born and London-based, Akomfrah uses the screen to introduce new explorations of the experiences of migrant diasporas across the globe, Afrofuturism, and visions of the natural world. Akomfrah’s videos have established…

Georgia O’Keefe: Abstract Variations at SAM

March 5 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Seattle Art Museum, 1300 First Ave
Seattle,WA98101United States
+ Google Map

From SAM:   Explore O’Keeffe’s unique approach to abstraction through 17 works from the 1910s to the 1930s. At the heart of the installation is Music, Pink and Blue, No. 1, a recent addition to SAM’s collection and a gift of late Trustee Barney A. Ebsworth. The first complete expression of O’Keeffe’s personal brand of modernism, Abstract Variations brings Music, Pink and Blue, No. 1 together with Music, Pink and Blue, No. 2, from the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, for the first time in Seattle, along with loans from museums across the country. Music, Pink and Blue, No. 1 is O’Keeffe’s first major oil painting. She painted it after moving to New York City in 1918, departing from the more intimate media of charcoal and watercolor to take up the more public and ambitious medium of oil. Examples of her earlier drawings in the exhibition illustrate this transition, while subsequent paintings demonstrate what came later in O’Keeffe’s work. Also on view are photographs of the artist by Alfred Stieglitz. Music, Pink and Blue, No. 1 and No. 2 are important works in O’Keeffe’s long and storied career as examples of pure abstraction. Their shared title and palette draw an immediate connection between musical cadences and painterly hues.…

In Context: Joseph Steininger Solo Exhibition at J. Rinehart Gallery

April 11 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
J. Rinehart Gallery, 319 Third Avenue S
Seattle,WA98109
+ Google Map
FREE

From J. Rinehart Gallery: Seattle native, Joseph Steininger is an artist and innovator interested in the constantly changing space found in cities. His work is influenced by a mixture of street art culture and printmaking processes. Using traditional and time-honored forms of fine art, his pieces are remarkably complex and masterfully represent this contemporary medium. Working from photographs taken of rough urban landscapes, graffiti, condemned buildings, and overgrown parking lots, Joseph Steininger elevates typically unnoticed or seemingly decrepit subject matter to the level fine art. His exhibit, In Context will explore Steiniger’sprocess of painstakingly reducing images to abstracted shapes through intricate hand-cut stencils. This not only lays the groundwork for his elaborately spray-painted compositions but the act of rebuilding the image through multiple spray-painted stenciled layers imbues each piece with a new life and context as a work of fine art. In conjunction with the exhibition, a digital catalog will be published with an essay written by arts writer and editor Lauren Gallow.  The exhibition of new spray-painted works by Steininger, will be on view April 11–May 23, 2020 at J.Rinehart Gallery. The opening reception is on Saturday April 11, 2020 from 3-6pm, as well as First Thursday, May 7,…

LA BOHÈME At Seattle Opera

May 3 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
McCaw Hall,

From Seattle Opera: By Giacomo Puccini A timeless story of love and loss. An audience favorite for over a century, this tale of four young Parisians who dedicate their lives to art and love is guaranteed to touch your heart. Puccini’s lush, romantic score—performed by a 60-piece orchestra—perfectly captures the simple joys and heartbreaking sorrows of the idealistic bohemians. Their camaraderie, conviction, and passions, masterfully conveyed by an iconic score, make La bohème easy to love—and impossible to forget. The “full-bore, traditional production” (DC Metro Weekly) from Washington National Opera is new to Seattle Opera. “Saturated in uncompromising quality and creative detail,” (DC Metro Weekly) the production fills the McCaw Hall stage with nearly 100 on-stage performers in a spectacular Parisian street scene. Two stellar casts include returning stars Angel Blue (Bess, Porgy and Bess), Ginger Costa-Jackson (Carmen, Carmen), Will Liverman (Figaro, The Barber of Seville), Ashraf Sewailam (Leporello, Don Giovanni), and Brandie Sutton (Clara, Porgy and Bess) and as well as many exciting Seattle Opera debuts.
