Marie Watt in The Denver Post
Marie Watt’s recent exhibition, Each/Other at the Denver Art Museum was recently covered in The Denver Post. Ray Mark Rinaldi writes, “Both Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger are known for engaging in a creative process that brings people together to contribute both intellectual energy and actual labor to finished products. As this show presents them, the pair aren’t makers as much as they are co-makers, allowing free-form collaboration to guide the direction of their art.
Watt is probably best-known for organizing sewing circles where folks gather with needles and thread and the willingness to share personal stories that they stitch symbolically into large quilts intended to capture communal histories, struggles and hopes.”
The article discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the ideas and practices of communal art making and experiences.
