A Story of Resilience: Kent Monkman

Artist Kent Monkman's all-encompassing project takes viewers on a journey through Canada's history, starting in the present and going back before Canadian confederation. Throughout the book there are clever albeit controversial commentaries told by Monkman's genderfluid, time-travelling, supernatural alter-ego Miss ChiefEagle Testickle. Her narratives takes viewers through the history of New France and the fur trade, the nineteenth-century dispossession of Indigenous lands through Canadian colonial policies, the horrors of the residential school system, and modern Indigenous experiences in urban environments. Shame and Prejudice challenges predominant narratives of Canadian history andhonours the resilience of Indigenous peoples. This book accompanies Monkman?s largest solo exhibition to date, which is currently travelling across Canada at venues including the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, and the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver. 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 book is trilingual with all text in English, French and Cree.
