Artist Talk: Wendy Red Star in Conversation with Jordan Amirkhani
On March 11th at 6:00 p.m., you are invited to a virtual conversation between artist Wendy Red Star and curator Dr. Jordan Amirkhani.
Wendy Red Star uses photography, performance, fiber arts, and video to recast and interrogate historical narratives. Raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana, she draws upon deep research in archives to re-examine primary source photographs and cultural heritage. Her work has been shown and collected by the Met, MASS MoCA, the Portland Museum of Art, and the St. Louis Museum of Art. She guest-edited Aperture’s September 2020 issue on Native American photography.
Jordan Amirkhani’s research and writing reflect her commitment to intersectional feminist critique and the contextualization of issues of gender, class, and race within the development of European and American art from the nineteenth century to the present. She is a regular contributor to Daily Serving, Artforum, and Burnaway, and serves as a Professorial Lecturer in Art History at American University in Washington, DC.
The Museum of Fine Arts is excited to announce a series of guest lectures co-sponsored by the Department of Art and the Museum and Cultural Heritage Studies Program in the Department of Art History. These events, which will all be conducted online, are free and open to the public. Each speaker utilizes diverse approaches to their creative practice, leading discussions that are vital to the arts.
