Seattle Art Museum -
Double Exposure: Edward S. Curtis, Marianne Nicolson, Tracy Rector, Will Wilson features 150 images by Curtis, the historic photographer, alongside three contemporary artists.
All four artists contribute to a complex and ever-expanding portrait of Native America. The advent of photography changed the way we see each other and ourselves, and the camera lens
has been employed by artists in many ways since. Edward S. Curtis set out with his camera in the early 1900s to document the Indigenous peoples of North America,
mistakenly believing they would soon vanish. Marianne Nicolson creates monumental glassworks, projecting traditional Dzawada'enuxw First Nation expressions into a contemporary context.
Through film and digital media. Tracy Rector intimately shares the stories of the Native peoples of the Salish Sea and beyond. Photographer Will Wilson reclaims the early image-making
technologies used by Curtis to create a new archive of Indigenous representations.
The exhibition is at the Seattle Art Museum
in downtown Seattle and runs, June 14 - September 9, 2018.
