Dialogue | Wendy Red Star with Katerina Stathopoulou and Gaylord Torrence

On the occasion of Travels Pretty, join us for a conversation with Wendy Red Star, an artist who investigates histories and misunderstandings of Indigenous culture with humor and care.

Red Star—whose work was recently featured in the MCA exhibition Based on a True Story . . . —currently has a major public art exhibition on view at 300 JCDecaux bus shelters in three cities, including 150 in Chicago, organized by Public Art Fund. The project highlights the art of parfleches—intricately designed carrying cases that were historically made and decorated by Indigenous women. Red Star is joined by Gaylord Torrence, an expert on parfleche, and Katerina Stathopoulou, an adjunct curator at Public Art Fund, as they examine Red Star’s practice and its meaning for art in the public sphere.

This event is copresented by the MCA and Public Art Fund.This event will be hosted on Zoom.
