Join us for an evening of Miss Chief, artist Kent Monkman’s time-travelling, gender-fluid alter ego. Take a curator tour of the exhibition Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience: a journey through colonialism in Canadian paintings and artifacts as seen through the eyes of Miss Chief. Then watch a screening of seven short films including a North American ‘Indian’ dance remix, the coming out story of a Native teenager, and parodies of the ‘noble savage’ stereotype. This screening is in partnership with Pride London.
