On September 2nd at 7pm SAM curator Marisa Sanchez will be giving a talk with artist Amy Blakemore to open the exhibition Amy Blakemore: Photographs 1988 – 2008 at the Seattle Art Museum. The talk is free and open to the public, so head downtown to SAM and meet in the photography gallery on the 3rd floor.
Amy Blakemore: Photographs 1988–2008 offers a twenty-year survey of Amy Blakemore’s work, ranging from her black-and-white street photographs of the late 1980s to her recent portraits and landscapes. Originally rooted in documentary traditions, Blakemore has compared the activity of photography to the process of gathering broken bits and lost objects discovered serendipitously during long walks.
Amy Blakemore: Photographs 1988–2008 has been organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Additional support for the Seattle presentation was provided by individual donors.
