The words Each Other embroidered on a bandana

Contribute to Each/Other Art Exhibition

Contribute to a monumental artwork by artists Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marie Watt. Embroider a message onto a bandana, which the artists will incorporate into a large-scale sculpture for the Each/Other exhibition, which opens at the DAM in 2021.

Embroidered bandanas are needed by October 31, 2020.

Can acts of creative collaboration help heal broken bonds with the environment and with each other? Artists Cannupa Hanska Luger and Marie Watt invite the public to consider such questions while contributing to the physical manifestation of a large-scale sculptural installation. Through national and international participation, the artwork will become a temporary monument to collective relationship and collaborative handwork, bringing audiences into a tactile encounter with critically relevant issues of protection, shelter, reciprocity, sustenance, exchange, power, action, stewardship, wildness, kinship, vulnerability, and ferocity.
