Resilience Plate by Kent Monkman
Limited edition Resilience Plate by Kent Monkman. Featured in the installation “Starvation Table”, as a part of Shame and Prejudice: A Story of Resilience. Through the table, Monkman critiques how settlers enjoyed a land of plenty and bounty; while at the same time enacting colonial policies of starvation and deprivation against Indigenous peoples. The Resilience Plate features an image from Monkman’s iconic work, “The Daddies” and honours 150 years of Indigenous resistance and resilience.
Each plate is hand signed and includes a numbered certificate of authenticity making it a unique addition to your art collection.
