Cree artist Kent Monkman sweeps through art history, creating a disrupted narrative that entangles historical and contemporary relationships between Europeans and First Nations. This first ever monograph offers a wide-ranging look at an exceptional artistic practice, with particular emphasis on Monkman s history paintings and performances. The history paintings are revisionist investigations of early European reportage on First Nation cultures and take their cue from Albert Bierstadt's 19th century romanticized landscapes of mid-west America. The performances, which involve the artist s flamboyant personas and other high-spirited interventions into historical mythology, transform gallery spaces into multimedia Tipi camp extravaganzas. Abundantly illustrated and containing five original essays,
