Marie Watt in Cultured Mag
Cultured Mag featured Marie Watt and her current exhibition, Singing Everything, in the article, ‘We Get the History We Are Ready For’: Meet the Native Women Artists Claiming Their Place in New York.
Devorah Lauter writes, “‘Would I be here without someone like Jaune Quick-to-See Smith?’ asks Watt, a member of the Seneca Nation, from her Seattle studio over Zoom. ‘There have been many trailblazers, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.’ Watt’s striking fabric and mixed media work was recently included in the Whitney Museum’s ‘Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019,’ where she hosted a series of sewing circles, inviting the public to collectively sew responses to a question inspired by the U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo: What would you like to sing for this moment? The work that resulted is now on view at Marc Straus. ”
