Artist Lecture by Wendy Red Star

April 16, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

arts event

Time: 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM Location: 1316 Hart Hall

Award-winning artist, Wendy Red Star will be giving a public artist’s lecture about her artwork and practice. In conjunction with her solo-exhibition at the C.N. Gorman Museum, Red Star creates complex photographic works and hybridized powwow regalia to interrogate the main stream.

Her work layers influences from her tribal background (Crow), daily surroundings, aesthetic experiences, collected ephemera and conjured histories that are both real and imagined. Through her photographs new universes are built, simultaneously urban-rural and high-low with their own language of symbols created from such seemingly disparate sites as HUD houses, rez cars, three legged dogs, powwow culture, proliferative indigenous commoditization, and Red Star’s personal collection of memories growing up as a half-breed on the Crow Indian reservation.

Red Star is an artist living and working in Portland, Oregon. She received her B.F.A. from Montana State University-Bozeman and her M.F.A from UCLA in 2006. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and her work is included in numerous collections.

This event is sponsored by CN Gorman Museum, Native American Faculty and Staff Association, Native American Cultural Days
