Kent Monkman: St. Se­bas­tian (de­tail) 2017, acrylic on can­vas

Pasatiempo - - AMUSE-BOUCHE -

Peters Projects, 1011 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-954-5800 Kent Monkman con­flates fig­ures of myth and re­li­gion with a lit­tle-ex­plored topic of Amer­i­can his­tory: the idyl­lic spring­time gath­er­ings of Na­tive peo­ples, trap­pers, and moun­tain men for rau­cous, but mostly peace­ful, rev­elry in the Rock­ies dur­ing the 19th cen­tury. The artist makes ex­plicit ref­er­ences to art his­tory while ex­plor­ing con­tem­po­rary is­sues, in­clud­ing gen­der iden­tity and trans­gen­derism. His solo show The Ren­dezvous opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, July 7.
