press release

To expand on the Elles: Pompidou exhibition, SAM is also mounting Elles: SAM—Singular Works by Seminal Women Artists. This special exhibition of works by some 30 women artists is the first complete reconsideration of the Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries since the opening of the downtown museum in 2007. Elles: SAM at SAM Downtown will bring together exceptional loans and stunning treasures from SAM’s collection (including works never seen in the Northwest) and highlight some of the inspired, and hard-fought, achievements of 20th and 21st century women artists.

SAM is taking our celebration of women artists even further by featuring works by women at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, the Olympic Sculpture Park, and SAM Gallery as well.
