Tolerance

Tolerance

October 23, 2017 | 5PM

Tolerance, an exhibit created by designer Mirko Ilic, has been traveling around the world, with prominent designers reinterpreting the concept and adding new posters at each stop along the way. In previous iterations of this exhibit, posters were displayed in outdoor public spaces, and have been both celebrated and defaced. Now, within these walls, we seek a discourse on the failings of tolerance and how we, as a society, must resist intolerance. We encourage you to think about how these posters communicate the discrimination and hatred faced by marginalized groups and individuals, as well as how hate groups continue to manipulate, distort and co-opt these messages to spread propaganda and violence.

Art and Life Along the Northwest Coast

Art and Life Along the Northwest Coast

December 31, 2017 | 5PM

Over their long habitation of the Pacific Northwest, First Peoples have shaped their lifeways around the resources of the water, forests, valleys, and mountains. In tandem, they have developed rich oral traditions and ceremonies that link inextricably to this region. 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.

This collection is currently open and has been on display since 2014. Be sure not to miss out! For more information, click here.
