Kent Monkman

Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience

Kent Monkman, through the eyes of his alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle, takes the viewer on a journey through Canada’s history beginning a hundred and fifty years before confederation.

This circulating exhibition was 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.
