Marie Watt in Exhibition at PAFA in 2021


Marie Watt will be featured in an upcoming exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts entitled, ‘Taking Space: Contemporary Women Artists and the Politics of Scale.’

“The show examines the approaches of women artists for whom space is a critical feature of their work, whether they take the space on a wall, the real estate of a room through sculpture and installation, engage seriality as a spatial visual practice, cast a wide legacy in art history or claim the space of their body. This exhibition invites viewers to consider how size and repetition can be interpreted as political gestures in the practices of many women artists.”

The exhibition will be up January 7, 2021–April 11, 2021 at the Fisher Brooks Gallery.
