Join Marie Watt in a Virtual Sewing Circle for Denver Museum show 2021


EACH/OTHER
A collaborative project by Cannupa Hanska Luger + Marie Watt

What would the world look like if, as humans, we thought of ourselves as companion species? Can acts of creative collaboration help heal broken bonds with the environment and with each other? Artists Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marie Watt invite the public to consider such questions while contributing to the physical manifestation of a large-scale sculptural installation. Through national and international participation, the artwork will become a temporary monument to collective relationship and collaborative handwork, bringing audiences into a tactile encounter with critically relevant issues of protection, shelter, reciprocity, sustenance, exchange, power, action, stewardship, wildness, kinship, vulnerability, and ferocity.

Contribute to a monumental artwork. Embroider a message onto a bandana which artists Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marie Watt will incorporate into a forthcoming large scale sculpture for the Each/Other exhibition at Denver Art Museum, May 23-August 22, 2021.
