Be the first to see Objects in Motion: Wendy Red Star’s Accession Series. Items once draped on horses, cars, or the arms and bodies of the Apsáalooke people are typically presented as static and sequestered under museum glass. Wendy Red Star reanimates these objects by visually contextualizing them within their original purpose. The resulting Accession series is a vibrant meeting of past and present. It honors the artistry of the original makers who crafted the objects, as well as the anonymous artists who catalogued them. The Apsáalooke pieces are brought back to life, confirming their place in living history and the powerful legacy of her own Nation within the larger context of contemporary American art.
This exhibition is made possible in part by Alan and Lynnette Eusden, the Community Foundation of Elmira-Corning and the Finger Lakes, Inc. and by Rochelle Media Works.
