Partner Event

Book Launch and Signing with Wendy Red Star

Saturday, June 25

3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. EDT

Sargent’s Daughters 179 East Broadway New York, 10002

Join Aperture and Sargent’s Daughters to celebrate the launch of Delegation, the Apsáalooke (Crow) artist Wendy Red Star’s first monograph, copublished by Aperture and Documentary Arts

Red Star’s photography recasts historical narratives with wit, candor, and a feminist, Indigenous perspective, centering Native American life and material culture through imaginative self-portraiture, vivid collages, archival interventions, and site-specific installations. Whether referencing nineteenth-century Crow leaders or 1980s pulp fiction, museum collections or family pictures, Red Star’s practice questions the role of the photographer in shaping Indigenous representation.

Coinciding with the closing reception of Red Star’s solo exhibition “Delegation” at Sargent’s Daughters, Red Star will be in conversation with Brendan Embser, senior managing editor of Aperture magazine and editor of Delegation. Following the discussion, Red Star will sign copies of her book.


Wendy Red Star (born in Billings, Montana, 1981) is an Apsáalooke artist based in Portland, Oregon. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions and is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art, New York; Brooklyn Museum; Saint Louis Art Museum; MASS MoCA, North Adams, Massachusetts; and the British Museum, London. Red Star was the guest editor of Aperture magazine’s Fall 2020 issue, “Native America,” and is the recipient of a 2022 Emerson Collective Fellowship.


This event is presented in partnership with Sargent’s Daughters
