In celebration of the recent opening of Imogen Cunningham: A Retrospective, SAM will be activating the exhibition throughout the day with an engaging tour and innovative performances that highlight and explore the exhibition's themes. Take a My Favorite Things tour, watch a pop-up performance in the galleries, and participate in a self-guided art activity!

My Favorite Things tour with Alice Gosti

SAM's My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers, and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.

This tour will be led by Alice Gosti. Alice is a transnational immigrant performance artist, choreographer, and cultural strategist who creates site-responsive art installations that examine how history and politics enter the body and condition how we move. She is the founder and artistic director of Malacarne. Born in Perugia, Italy and raised by artists Sandford & Gosti, she’s worked between Italy and occupied Duwamish and Coast Salish land (Seattle) since 2008.

The tour will begin at 4:30 pm at the top of the 3rd floor gallery escalator.

Pop-Up Performances

Three movement artists will perform in response to Imogen Cunningham: A Retrospective and will explore Cunningham’s artistic relationship with choreographer and dance pioneer Martha Graham.

Stay tuned for performer info and timeline!
