Seattle's Film Industry and the Women Who Run It

Learn more about Seattle’s most prominent filmmakers in a panel discussion featuring creative director, editor, and videographer Myisa Plancq-Graham, Northwest Film Forum Board Vice President Sudeshna Sen, director of Seattle's Film and Music Office Kate Becker, and actress and filmmaker Emily Pando.  Northwest Film Forum, Riveter, $10

Dis(re)putable Provenances
The prescribed provenance of an art piece—or the work's origin—is a fundamentally important factor in establishing and determining worth in the art industry. Amie Siegel's Provenance (2013) traces the journey of furniture through the art market back to architect Le Corbusier. Dr Vikramaditya Prakash, a professor at the University of Washington whose work focuses on the intersections of architecture, modernism, and post colonialism, explores and disputes the claimed provenances in Siegel's piece. Dr. Prakash uses his own expertise as an architectural historian to assess Le Corbusier-designed furniture. Frye Art Museum, Free
