Edward S. Curtis

Thu Jun 14 – Sun Sep 9 2018

Seattle Art Museum

Simonyi Special Exhibition Galleries

150 years after Edward S. Curtis' birth, his haunting portraits of Native Americans have an indelible place in the American consciousness. This major exhibition of more than 180 works by Curtis, as well as contemporary works by indigenous artists Marianne Nicolson, Tracy Rector, and Will Wilson seeks to evaluate this photographic legacy from 21st-century perspectives.

This exhibition has been organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/New York City/Paris/Lausanne, in collaboration with Seattle Art Museum.
