The Book on Kent Monkman: Canada’s Internationally Celebrated Painter on the Necessity of Artist Publications

WATCH NOW

This discussion with renowned artist Kent Monkman, moderated by Art Canada Institute Founder and Director Sara Angel, follows the ACI’s release of Revision and Resistance: mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art about Monkman’s groundbreaking 2020 installation. The book served as the basis for a conversation about the enduring role of publications in documenting, examining, and recognizing an artist’s work, as well as in shaping  art history. Monkman and Angel also addressed how Revision and Resistance is the only book to offer the behind-the-scenes story of Monkman’s diptych mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People), two genre-defying paintings that reverse the colonial gaze of American and European art history through an Indigenous lens to present a powerful vision for the future.
