Marie Watt's piece, Blanket Story: Indian Territories, Round Dance, Grandmother, 2016, is a part of a group exhibition at Kasmin Gallery in New York City. The show, Between the Earth and Sky, was reviewed in the New York Times.
"An exhibition of twenty-two monolithic sculptures that brings together examples of the form spanning from 900 A.D. to 2019. The presentation demonstrates how stelae, herms, and columns have acted as repositories of meaning or markers of time and place across many cultures since prehistory, as well as the way in which the expressive possibilities of this format continue to resonate with sculptors working internationally today. Be they analogues for the human form, waypoints, sentinels, support structures, memorials or otherwise, their metaphorical and formal potency abides."
