The Mills College Art Lecture Series presents Marie Watt
Wednesday February 23, 2011 at 7:00 pm,
Danforth Lecture Hall in the Aron Art Center
Lecture made possible by the Herringer Family Foundation

Marie Watt is a multidisciplinary artist who was born in Seattle in
1967 and lives and
works in Brooklyn, New York. Her approach to art-making is shaped by the proto-
Feminism of Iroquois matrilineal custom, a discourse on social
practice, as well as Abstract
Expressionism and Pop Art. Like Jasper Johns, she is interested in
"things that the mind
already knows." Unlike the Pop artists, she uses a vocabulary of
natural materials (stone,
cornhusks, wool, cedar) and forms (blankets, pillows, bridges) that
are universal to human
experience (though not uniquely American) and noncommercial in character.

All lectures are free and open to the public
