Wendy Red Star: A Scratch on the Earth is a mid-career retrospective of the artist’s photography, textiles, and installation work at the Newark Museum (February 23 – June 16, 2019). Her work draws on pop culture, conceptual art, and her native traditions, including her life on the Crow reservation in Montana. Wendy describes how she came to realize that most people know very little about Native American history or life today, and how her work addresses that through, sometimes through humor. Also interviewed are the exhibition’s guest curator, Nadiah Rivera Fellah, and the Newark Museum’s curator of American Art, Tricia Laughlin Bloom.
