Kent Monkman’s Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience takes you on a journey through Canada’s history.

The artist’s gender fluid, time-travelling alter-ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, narrates the story through the lens of Indigenous resilience, from New France and Confederation, to the harsh urban environment of Winnipeg’s North End and contemporary life on the reserve.

Created as a response to Canada 150, this nationally touring exhibition features nearly 80 pieces, including Monkman’s own paintings, installations and sculptures, in dialogue with historical artifact loaned from museums and private collections across Canada.
