Wendy Red Star


March 7 - March 10, 2019
Sheffer/Scheffler Arts Education Space


Wendy Red Star explores cultural identity from a Native American perspective through projects of various mediums, from photography to performance. Her interventionist practices often mine cultural institutions to strengthen the Native voice of collections, exhibitions, and programs. Working to reexamine matters of authenticity and representation, Red Star’s diorama projects, notably the Four Seasons series, confronts the stereotypical western gaze and promotes conversations about agency using visual tropes of the West and Native cultures.
