SAM presents "Double Exposure" starting June 14

June

  • The Last Starfighter: The play is based on the 1980s sci-fi teen-boy wish-fulfillment movie about Alex, who finds himself recruited as an ace starfighter pilot with the fate of the galaxy in his hands after he beats his favorite intergalactic video game. June 14–July 1. $24–$30. Ages 9 and older. SecondStory Repertory, Redmond
  • Double Exposure: Edward S. Curtis, Marianne Nicolson, Tracy Rector, Will Wilson: Whether you realize it or not, photographer Edward S. Curtis probably had a hand in shaping your ideas about Native Americans. His haunting portraits preserved images of a way of life on the brink of extinction, leaving an indelible mark on the American consciousness. Now, 150 years after his birth, this major exhibition of more than 180 works by Curtis also recognizes the criticisms of his work (photographs were often staged to promote stereotypes) and presents a counterpoint through works by indigenous artists Marianne Nicolson, Tracy Rector and Will Wilson. June 14–Sept. 9. $19.95, children younger than 12 free. All ages. Seattle Art Museum, Seattle
