Details:Marie Watt (born 1967) is an American artist and citizen of the Seneca Nation of Indians. Watt has continued a tradition in Indigenous art, in which Indigenous insight is engendered at the exhibition venue. This exhibition will spotlight two textile works assembled from panels of cloth embroidered during sewing circles (images above). Watt pieced together smaller panels, each with a word of importance to the embroiderer, into two monumental tapestries: in 2020, the 16-½ -foot-long Companion Species (At What Cost); and, in 2018, the 17-½-foot-long Companion Species (Calling All My Relations). The exhibition will also feature thematically related smaller works, showcasing the artist’s varied practice, including works in beaded felt, beaded “treaty cloth” (a muslin continuously provided by the U.S. government by way of a 1794 Pickering Treaty), and acrylic-on-paper prints. Furthermore, visitors will engage with short statements composed by Watt and applied to the gallery walls. This stylized and designed wall text will not only bring texture and visual interest to visitors’ exhibition experience but will provide a means for Watt to deliver her important storytelling and activist practices to the audience. The wall text will span material from Seneca origin stories to the artist’s personal teachings and reflections and will give viewers the opportunity to consider how an art exhibition can provide a platform for decolonization, social justice, and activism, in conjunction with the showcasing of Indigenous art.
