KSMoCA presents Wendy Red Star

Please join us for the KSMoCA Visiting Artist Lecture Series, which is open to members of the public and students at Dr. MLK Jr School. The lecture will take place in the school library. Following the lecture join us in the halls of KSMoCA for a public opening of Wendy Red Star’s exhibition. A portion of the work exhibited will be produced in collaboration with students from Dr. MLK Jr. School during a workshop lead by the artist.

Artist Wendy Red Star works across disciplines to explore the intersections of Native American ideologies and colonialist structures, both historically and in contemporary society. Raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana, Red Star’s work is informed both by her cultural heritage and her engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance. An avid researcher of archives and historical narratives, Red Star seeks to incorporate and recast her research, offering new and unexpected perspectives in work that is at once inquisitive, witty and unsettling. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral to her practice, along with creating a forum for the expression of Native women’s voices in contemporary art.
