Curator Talk: Wendy Red Star

Thursday, February 3, 2022 @ 5:30 pm

Wendy Red Star, celebrated artist and curator of the exhibition Native America: In Translation, will provide an overview of the project and a consideration of how the selected artists engage with photography and film in their work. The exhibition examines the historical, often fraught relationship between photography and Native representation, while also offering new perspectives by emerging artists who reimagine what it means to be a citizen in North America today. 

Cosponsored by the Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAISIP) Working Group Seminars Series, a Collaborative Humanities project in the Humanities Council. 

Native America: In Translation is curated by Wendy Red Star. The exhibition is organized by Aperture Foundation, New York, and is made possible, in part, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
