Marie Watt at Hunterdon Art Museum


Marie Watt’s solo exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum opens this Sunday, September 26th. The exhibition will “spotlight diverse textile works, including monumental tapestry, Companion Species (At What Cost), assembled from panels of cloth embroidered during sewing circles.”

“This exhibition furthermore features wall text prompts composed in collaboration with Watt that invite the viewer to consider some decolonizing ideas brought by her artwork and also by her community engagement practices. After Watt and the curator collaborated on these prompts, an independent designer schematized the wall text font and colors to subtly play with and against—to seek to trouble—museum display conventions. In both form and content, this special text works on decolonizing this institutional space.”
