Canadian Cree artist Kent Monkman is unveiling two paintings commissioned to hang in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The installation is set to open in the Met’s Great Hall on Thursday. The large-scale paintings contain references to works in the Met’s collection that challenge  depictions of Indigenous subjects. Monkman says this is a turning point for a museum that  encourages shared perspectives on its own history. The Met exhibition runs thru until April. His solo exhibition called “Shame and Prejudice; A Story of Resilience,”  tours museums across Canada next year.
