The Eiteljorg Museum has the privilege of partnering with Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art (iMOCA) to present the art of Wendy Red Star (Crow) in the exhibit Circling The Camp: Wendy Red Star. Red Star is a 2009 Eiteljorg Fellow and prolific artist. Thank you to Shauta Marsh, director, iMOCA for sharing her thoughts about contemporary art and Red Star's work in this interview with Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Curator Jennifer Complo McNutt. 

More on Wendy Red Star from iMOCA's newsletter:
Over the course of her practice, Wendy Red Star has worked within and between the mediums of photography, sculpture, installation, performance and design. Featured in Huffington Post and other publications, the 2009 Eiteljorg Fellow will open her solo exhibition with iMOCA June 6, from 6-11 p.m.  The exhibit will run through July 19th with the hours of Thursday- Saturday, 12 am-7 p.m.  

Artist talk between Red Star and Eiteljorg Museum's Curator of Contemporary Art, Jennifer McNutt, is June 7 at 1 p.m.

Red Star's work layers influences drawn from her tribal background (Crow), daily surroundings, collected ephemera and conjured histories that are both real and imagined. Through her photographs and sculpture 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, indigenous commoditization, and Red Star's personal collection of memories growing up as a half-breed on the Crow Indian reservation.

Wendy Red Star is an artist living and working in Portland, Oregon. Red Star 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. Her exhibitions include shows at the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, Hallie Ford Museum, The Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship 2009, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Domaine de Kerguéhennec, Laura Bartlett Gallery London, The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, Missoula Art Museum, St. Louis Art Museum, National Museum of the American Indian-New York, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the Bockley Gallery.
