Congratulations to Naama Tsabar on her recent museum acquisitIon at the SEATTLE ART MUSEUM
SEATTLE – The Seattle Art Museum (SAM) has made the inaugural acquisition selections from its Richard E. Lang and Jane Lang Davis Acquisition Fund for Global Contemporary Art. The six works of contemporary art from around the world, by artists of color and women, join the museum’s collection and will go on view in the coming years.
The works of art are by Dr. Chila Kumari Singh Burman, Dawn Cerny, Dana Claxton, Woody De Othello, Senga Nengudi, and Naama Tsabar. The selections align with SAM’s broader acquisitions strategy, bringing more works by Black, Indigenous, and artists of color as well as women into its global collection.
“These inaugural acquisitions point towards the future of SAM’s collection and underscore the visionary leadership of the Friday Foundation,” says Catharina Manchanda, Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art. “From the support during the critical moment of the pandemic closures, to the extraordinary gift of major works of art and robust support for conservation and care, and now to the acquisition of groundbreaking works of contemporary art, we see the legacy of the Langs is supporting the past, present, and future of the Seattle Art Museum.”
