The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

Shame and Prej­u­dice: A Story of Re­silience If you’re yet to see famed Indige­nous artist Kent Monkman’s epic, Baroque-feel­ing clapback to the Canada 150 cel­e­bra­tions, this week is a good time to peep Shame

and Prej­u­dice at the Art Gallery of Nova Sco­tia. Aside from the stack of can­vases re-fram­ing the con­fed­er­a­tion’s his­tory with the help of Monkman’s gen­der-fluid, time-trav­el­ling al­ter-ego Miss Chief Ea­gle Te­stickle, the gallery is cur­rently show­ing Monkman’s stag­ger­ing 7.5 x 3.5 me­ter paint­ing Miss Chief’s Wet Dream— the artist’s largest-ever work and his first to be cen­tred around a Mar­itime theme—be­fore vault­ing it on Novem­ber 11.
