    Artist Kent Monkman’s Surreal Visions of the Urban Rez [10 Pictures]

     In an exhibition called “Urban Res,” currently featured at Sargent’s Daughters gallery in New York City, Cree painter Kent Monkman looks at the ironies faced by today’s urban Natives. In an interview with the Huffington Post, the artist recalled formative encounters with his own culture through the skewed lenses of museums and 19th-century paintings of George Catlin. The museums presented large dioramas “where Native Americans were frozen in time, in some idyllic pre-contact state,” Monkman says, while “Catlin and others were obsessed with capturing peoples who wouldn’t exist in the future.”
