Changing Hands: Northwest Coast First Nations Art Crossing Tribal Boundaries
Barbara Brotherton / Curator of Native American Art
Kathryn Bunn-Marcuse / Assistant Professor of Art, Art History, and Design, and Curator, Burke Museum, University of Washington

Tickets to this talk are currently sold out. Unclaimed seats will be released 10 minutes prior to the lecture on a first-come, first-served basis. Additionally, a free simulcast is available in Nordstrom Lecture Hall.

Although each tribal entity on the Northwest Coast has artworks, protocols, and ceremonies unique to each, there are many instances where art and regalia have crossed borders and attained new meanings. Two of these curious cases, involving a mask and headdress in SAM’s collection, will be presented from the point of view of their individual histories as well as an understanding of how Indigenous networks connect people and their cultural belongings.

Doors open at 6:30 pm for Happy Hour in the South Hall where you can enjoy complimentary wine. Curator talks begin at 7 pm in Plestcheeff Auditorium.

Single tickets: Members $7 / Public $10
Series ticket packages are not available to the general public.
