Kent Monkman: Revision and Resistance

mistikôsiwak (WOODEN BOAT PEOPLE) at the

This book explores mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People) by the internationally renowned artist Kent Monkman. Commissioned by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the epic diptych exhibited in The Met’s Great Hall revisits iconic works of art, notably the famed painting Washington Crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze. Monkman—featured in mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People) as his time-travelling, shape-shifting, gender-fluid alter ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testickle—reverses the colonial gaze of American and European art history through an Indigenous lens to present a powerful vision for the future.
Featuring commentaries by Sasha Suda, director and CEO of the National Gallery of Canada; art historian Ruth B. Phillips and historian Mark Salber Phillips; Jami C. Powell, associate curator of Native American Art at the Hood Museum; Shirley Madill, executive director at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, and Nick Estes, assistant professor at the University of New Mexico, Revision and Resistance: mistikôsiwak (Wooden Boat People) at The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the definitive documentation on Monkman, his practice, and two of the most important paintings of our times.
