The studio of Toronto artist Kent Monkman is a study in cultural cross-pollination. On the table in the middle of the space, an assistant is making a ceremonial feather headdress to Monkman’s exacting specifications (black and white feathers with pink trim and sequins), regalia that will be used in his performance at the Royal Ontario Museum tonight. The desk nearby is scattered with correspondence and notes, and a selection of well-thumbed art history books are propped open here and there for easy reference, many of them marked with slips of paper.
