still from "Shooting Geronimo"
I had the good fortune to view a video starring Monkman's two-spirited alter-ego, "Dance of Miss Chief", earlier this week at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal. The exhibition, "Beat Nation", chronicles the connections between "art, hip hop and aboriginal culture". Unfortunately, I couldn't find a copy of "Dance of Miss Chief" posted anywhere online. Thankfully however, I found a wealth of images documenting Monkman's impressive oeuvre.
See a sample of Monkman's work below.
