Join us for an evening of short films by Kent Monkman, a featured artist in the exhibition Generations: The Sobey Family and Canadian Art.

Known for his provocative interventions into Western European and American art history, Monkman is passionate about art and profoundly aware of how colonialism had affected Indigenous communities.

With topics of colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience, experience another angle of Monkman’s work through film after enjoying several large-scale paintings in the Gallery. Introductions to films provided by Indigenous Arts Programmer, Aiden Gillis.

1. Mary (2011)
2. Casualties of Modernity (2015)
3. Shooting Geronimo (2007)
4. Taxonomy of the European Male (2005)
