Join Lynda Roscoe Hartigan, The Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo Director and CEO, for a conversation with Indigenous contemporary artist Cannupa Hanska Luger, in advance of the opening of the new exhibition Each Other/Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger.

Luger is a New Mexico-based multi-disciplinary artist. Using social collaboration in response to timely and site-specific topics, Luger produces multi-pronged projects that take many forms. Through monumental installations that incorporate ceramics, video, sound, fiber, steel, and repurposed materials, Luger interweaves performance and political action to communicate stories about 21st-century Indigeneity. Many of Luger’s artworks will be on view in the forthcoming Each/Other: Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger, an exhibition organized by the Denver Art Museum that opens January 29, 2022 at PEM. Included in the exhibition is Luger’s Every One (2018). Hundreds of people across the United States and Canada contributed to this collaborative artwork which is composed of over 4,000 individual handmade clay beads — each bead representing an Indigenous person who has been lost in the missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, queer, and trans epidemic.
