Event: Artist Lecture by Wendy Red Star
Speaker: Wendy Red Star - C.N. Gorman Museum
Description: 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 futuristic 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 artworks new universes are built, simultaneously urban-rural and high-low with their own language of symbols created from such seemingly disparate sites as rez cars, powwow culture, proliferative indigenous commoditization, and Red Star's personal collection of memories growing up 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 held in numerous collections including the C.N. Gorman Museum.
