Description


Each/Other includes major pieces in diverse media by artists Marie Watt (Seneca and German-Scots) and Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, and European) and their collaborators. The collection explores their engagement with community, materials, and the land. Watt draws primarily from history, biography, Iroquois proto-feminism, and Indigenous principles, often addressing the interaction of the arc of history with the intimacy of memory. Luger uses social collaboration in response to timely, site-specific topics, interweaving performance and political action to communicate stories about twenty-first-century Indigeneity. Although each artist's practice is rooted in collaboration, they have not worked or exhibited together before in a way that highlights the shared underpinnings and differences of their work, which relies variously on sculpture, photography, installation, and video. Each/Other explores the collective process of creating art and urges us to reconsider both how museums privilege certain stories and our own places within systems that subjugate and disenfranchise.
