The Romantic tradition of westward expansion and colonial nation-building is radically revised by the artist Ken Monkman in his fantastic vision of idyllic free-for-all pioneer orgies, flamboyant performance personas and other high-spirited interventions into historical mythology. His show “The Triumph of Mischief” continues to December 30 at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art. (952 Queen St. W., Toronto, ON.)
