Companion Species (At What Cost): The Works of Marie Watt


Marie Watt, Companion Species (At What Cost), 2020


Explore the varied textile works of American artist and Seneca Nation of Indians citizen Marie Watt. The selection draws from history, biography, Iroquois proto-feminism, and Indigenous teachings; in these works, Watt explores the intersection of community, history, and storytelling. Her work has been exhibited and held in permanent collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Yale University Art Gallery, and the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, among others.

Alisha Wormsley: Remnants of An Advanced Technology


Alisha B. Wormsley, 2021, cropped detail of work-in-progress for Hunterdon Art Museum show


This exhibition foregrounds Alisha B. Wormsley's celebrated engagements with Black futurism—a genre of reimagining Black life often with a futuristic aesthetic. The imagery in this exhibition draws, in part, from her established body of work, "Children of NAN", which Wormsley describes as an archive of objects, photos, video footage, films, sounds, philosophies, myths, rituals, and performances that she's been compiling for over a decade to document the ways that Black women care for themselves, each other, and the earth.

Doug Herren: Color-Forms/Ceramic Structures


Yellow Ewer; Green Vase-Form


Spark your sense of wonder and curiosity through the whimsically vibrant work by Doug Herren. Herren's current ceramic work explores invoking vessel references in large-scale forms reminiscent of abandoned industrial tools, gaudily colored. He uses clay in the fashioning of both stands and tables, and the pottery forms cobbled together from wheel-thrown and hand-built components.

Featured images: Doug Herren, Yellow Ewer and Green-Vase Form.
