      Local art lovers who've been hoping to see Kent Monkman's thought-provoking Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience, can do it from the comfort of their homes tomorrow.

      At 7 pm on October 22, UBC prof. Jennifer Kramer, curatorial liaison for the traveling exhibition, will lead an online tour of it from the Museum of Anthropology at UBC.

      According to the info on the MOA website, Monkman's exhibition "(re)tells Canadian history through the eyes of his provocative alter-ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle—a bold, time-traveling shapeshifter who takes us on her voyage through time."

      Shame and Prejudice is described as "a 'restorying' that changes the familiar nationalist myth of British-French settlers discovering a 'new world' ripe for possession and resource extraction to a counter-narrative focused upon Indigenous strength, healing, and resurgence."

      The prerecorded tour on Zoom will be followed by a live Q&A with Kramer.

      The event is free, but registration is required. For more info look here.
