Casualties of Modernity: A Kent Monkman Performance
Come spend an evening with Miss Chief Eagle Testickle—celebrity artist, aristocratic socialite and patron of the arts. Miss Chief is the alter-ego of the internationally acclaimed artist, Kent Monkman (Cree), who will present his world premiere of a new performance art piece commissioned by the Denver Art Museum. In his work, he aims to rewrite the history books on issues such as cultural oppression, representation, gender, and sexuality. In this performance, Miss Chief will visit with the sick and ailing parts of art history, from romanticism to contemporary art, and will diagnose the casualties of modernity.
Recommended for mature audiences.
