Apsáalooke (Crow) artist Wendy Red Star works in a variety of media to challenge stereotypes and romanticized representations of Indigenous people. She tackles issues such as colonialism and the environment, often with elements of humor. In line with themes of Indigenous Futurism, Red Star’s work reexamines the historical narratives of Indigenous people. It also envisions alternate Native realities, such as in her 2021 series "A Float for the Future," which according to her website, "reimagines the traditional Crow Fair Parade for an altered world." Wendy Red Star: Delegation is the artist’s first career retrospective monograph, co-published by Aperture and Documentary Arts. It includes a variety of essays, stories, poems, and full-page spreads of the artist’s work, as well as an interview between the artist and Josh T. Franco.
