Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger features the work of Watt and Luger, two leading Indigenous contemporary artists whose processes focus on collaborative artmaking, community engagement, materials, and the land. Each/Other features 26 mixed media sculptures, wall hangings and large-scale installation works by Watt (Seneca, Scottish, German) and Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota and European), along with a new monumental artist-guided community artwork. Works on view in Each/Other will consist of materials including carved wood, ceramic and fabric sculpture, photography, installation works with coconcertina and oil drums, video-based interpretive elements and documentation pieces to show past performance works by the artists. Together, Watt and Luger emphasize creativity as a boundless process, and a catalyst for connection and building greater empathy and understanding between individuals, neighbors, communities, and the world around us.
Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger is organized by the Denver Art Museum. It is presented with the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts, The Robert Lehman Foundation, c3:initiative, Native Arts and Culture Foundation and Osage Nation Foundation.
