Win a Ticket to ‘Shame and Prejudice’ Exhibit at Museum of Anthropology

Two lucky readers will get a chance to see Kent Monkman’s work.

Tyee Staff 19 Oct 2020 | TheTyee.ca

Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience provides a searing critique of Canada’s colonial policies, past and present, on the occasion of the recent sesquicentennial. As Monkman explains, “The last 150 years — the period of modernity — represents the most devastating period for First Peoples, including the signing of the numbered treaties, the reserve system, genocidal policies of the residential schools, mass incarceration and urban squalor.”

This exhibition at the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver features nearly 80 pieces, including Monkman’s own paintings, installations and sculptures, in dialogue with historical artifacts loaned from museums and private collections across Canada. MOA is the final stop for this critically-acclaimed travelling exhibition, which has been on a multi-year, cross-country tour to nine cities.

Kent Monkman is a Canadian artist of Cree ancestry who works with a variety of media, including painting, film/video, performance and installation. His work is known for its provocative reinterpretations of Romantic North American landscapes, and it explores themes of colonization, sexuality, loss and resilience — the complexities of historic and contemporary Indigenous experience.

The Tyee is pleased to offer two lucky readers a chance to win a pass to the exhibit, which runs until Jan. 3, 2021. Check out Tyee culture editor Dorothy Woodend's piece on the exhibition here.
