Curator’s Tour with Kent Monkman – Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience

February 4, 2017, 2pm University of Toronto Art Centre

A program of Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience

Kent Monkman’s large-scale, all-encompassing project, Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience, takes viewers on a journey through Canada’s history starting in the present and going back to 150 years before Canadian confederation. The exhibition includes the artist’s own paintings, drawings, and sculptural works, which form a dialogue with historical artefacts and artworks borrowed from museums and private collections across Canada. The exhibition narrates a story of Canada through the lens of First Nations’ resilience.

The exhibition is travelling across Canada at venues including the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Glenbow Museum in Calgary, and the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver (August 2020 to January 2021).

An accompanying book, published by the Art Museum at the University of Toronto and Black Dog Press, is forthcoming in September 2020.
