Miss Chief: Being Legendary


Kent Monkman discusses sexuality and gender within his painting practice, including the evolution of his shape-shifting, time-traveling, gender-fluid alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle. He will discuss his practice’s exploration of colonized sexuality, its challenge to the Romantic North American paintings of the 19th century, and the impact of genocidal Canadian policies on Indigenous people through his national touring exhibition Shame and Prejudice. Monkman will touch on the central role Miss Chief plays in his works, in which she serves as witness and narrator of various histories.
