Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience
Kent Monkman, The Bears of Confederation. Photo: Collection of Michelle Bilodeau and Matt Kingston.
The exhibition – organized by the Art Museum at the University of Toronto for Canada’s sesquicentennial – narrates a story of the country through the lens of First Nations resilience. Curator and artist Kent Monkman’s exhibition starts with contemporary life on the reserve and travels back 150 years before Confederation – to New France and the fur trade. Monkman, who is of Cree ancestry, includes his own paintings, drawings and sculptural works, in dialogue with historical artifacts and artworks borrowed from museums across the country.
