Wendy Red Star: UCLA Department of Art Lecture

Thursday Feb 4, 2021 6:30 pm This is a past program

Raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana, Wendy Red Star creates work that is informed by both 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 incorporates and recasts her research, offering new and unexpected perspectives in work that is at once inquisitive, witty, and unsettling. Red Star holds a BFA from Montana State University, Bozeman, and an MFA in sculpture from University of California, Los Angeles. She lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
