Kent Monkman: Shame and Prejudice A Story of ResilienceAdmission Price, see website for details

Kent Monkman’s Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience was created as a response to Canada 150 celebrations. Monkman’s gender fluid, time travelling alter-ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, guides visitors through Canada’s history, from New France and Confederation, to the harsh urban environment of Winnipeg’s north end and contemporary life on the reserve. Monkman’s art reinterprets Romantic North American landscapes, and explores colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience: the complexities of historic and contemporary Indigenous experience.

This circulating exhibition is produced by the Art Museum at the University of Toronto in partnership with the Confederation Centre Art Gallery, Charlottetown, and has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Ontario Arts Council.

Kent Monkman is a Canadian artist of Cree ancestry who works with a variety of media, including painting, film/video, performance, and installation. His work is known for its provocative reinterpretations of Romantic North American landscapes, and it explores themes of colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience: the complexities of historic and contemporary Indigenous experience.

Apart from Mondays and Good Friday, Easter Monday, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day.
