 Kent Monkman at Woodland Cultural

Two Kindred Spirits, Kent Monkman

Two Kindred Spirits, Kent Monkman

The Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, ON, is exhibiting Kent Monkman from now until Dec 20, 2014.

Monkman is of Cree ancestry and works in a variety of media including painting, film/video, performance and installation.

Featured paintings, video, and installation pieces challenge the national conceptualizations of Canadiana and the invented mythos surrounding the histories of First Nations people.

Monkman’s work challenges long standing conceptions and revered popular notions of accepted historical narratives and identity. Monkman’s art contests the romanticized notions of First Nations iconography within the greater western popular culture. Monkman continues to challenge preconceived notions of the “sacred” whether it be related to notions of nationhood, religion, art, or sexuality.
