From the Spirit: Kevin Red Star

“Kevin Red Star” Episode 19 (2009, 24 minutes)

Kevin Red Star was born in Lodge Grass, Montana, where he still lives and works. A member of the Crow Indian Nation, he is known for conjuring evocative images of his ancestors, their culture and history. His works are in collections of major American galleries and museums.

This 26-part series of half-hour documentaries presents the work and thoughts of a diverse group of Aboriginal artists. Twenty-four of them are Canadian--from British Columbia, Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Ontario; the other two are American--a painter from Montana and a glass blower from Seattle. By definition, artists are people who live on the edge, and Aboriginal artists have had a tougher journey than most.
The stories in this series are from artists who would not quit, even in the face of adversity and who have made a difference to both their communities and to the world of contemporary art.
