Soft Power (23 October–10 November 2012)

In conjunction with the Seattle Art Museum’s exhibition, Elles: Women Artists of the Centre Pompidou, Paris, curators Susie Lee and Kolya Rice created an intensive programming series at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery at UW  which employed a curatorial strategy of iterative, cumulative events and experiences to celebrate Seattle's cultural stewards in action. Soft Power presented performances, time-based works, panels, artist presentations, interviews, intimate gatherings, to activate the gallery space with ongoing dialogues and human connections.
