Marie Watt's new exhibition Each / Other with Cannupa Hanska Luger opened at the Denver Art Museum on May 21. The exhibition celebrates collaborative art-making that involves public participation.
"Exploring the collective process of creation, Each/Other will feature 26 mixed media sculptures, wall hangings and large-scale installation works by Watt (Seneca, Scottish, German) and Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota and European), along with a new monumental artist-guided community artwork. While each artist’s practice is rooted in collaboration, they have never before worked together or been exhibited alongside one another in a way that allows audiences to see both the similarities and contrasts in their work.
Watt and Luger's work is divided into two sections that explore the artists’ engagement with community, materials and the land. A new collaborative piece will be located where the two artists’ works converge within the gallery. Works on view in Each/Other will consist of materials including carved wood, ceramic and fabric sculpture, photography, installation works with concertina and oil drums, video-based interpretive elements and documentation pieces to show past performance works by the artists."
