MOA: Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience
The Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at UBC announces Kent Monkman’s timely and powerful solo exhibition Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience, on display from August 6, 2020 to January 3, 2021.
Curated by Monkman, a Canadian contemporary artist of Cree ancestry, the exhibition reframes Canada’s colonial history through a First Nations lens. Shame and Prejudice offers both a searing critique of Canadian policies over the past 150 years and a moving tribute to Indigenous resilience. The critically acclaimed exhibition makes its final stop in Vancouver following a three-year, cross-country tour, during a pivotal moment in the global discourse on systemic racism.
Shame and Prejudice features paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations by one of Canada’s most provocative artists lauded for his fearless, and vital, commentary.
