Watch the Marie Watt Artist Talk 

As part of her artist-in-residency at the Carlos Museum in conjunction with the exhibition Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger, Marie discusses this new body of work, from the inspiration she found in the traditions of the Seneca Nation and in the poetry of Joy Harjo to the ways she uses textiles to create blocks of color—salmon, ochre, rose, honey, lemon, and cranberry—to create “an intimate and sensuous experience of light moving over the horizon, of the radiant change sweeping across sky and ground.”

This talk was recorded on September 26, 2021.

This program is part of Marie Watt's artist residency, made possible through the generous financial support of the Hightower Lecture Fund, the Michael C. Carlos Museum, and Emory University's departments of Art History, English, Sociology, Anthropology, African American Studies, History, Film and Media Studies, and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, the Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative, and the James Weldon Johnson Institute for the Study of Race and Difference.
