The Denver Art Museum collaborated with contemporary indigenous artists. Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marie Watt worked together to create a profound exhibition on community and contemporary art. The Art collection had native thoughts and ideas, which people do not usually think about and get to see.
Marie Watt had her piece, 'companion series' that combined languages related to the 20th-century social movements. It had lyrics from Marvin Gaye, What is Going On, with Iroquois teachings, all sewn together in a lavish pink tapestry.
Cannupa Hanska Luger's installation, 'Everyone', was a curtain made of more than 4000 ceramic handmade beads from the Native communities across North America. The image represented a collective portrait of missing or murdered indigenous women, girls, and victims of gender violence. Marie and Luger used contemporary ideas to push the conversation that is needed today in our society. The collection was intriguing and thought-provoking.
