Kent Monkman

April 8 – December 16, 2023
The Great Mystery



Featuring a new body of paintings by Cree artist Kent Monkman—including two commissioned works for the Hood Museum of Art's permanent collections—The Great Mystery serves as both an introduction to and a revisitation of Monkman's early interest in abstract expressionism. Drawing on the museum's existing collection of modernist abstraction, Monkman's paintings create pathways for multiple and shared understandings across cultural divides and are unlike anything we have seen from him before.

This exhibition is organized by the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth, and generously supported by the Katharine T. and Merrill G. Beede 1929 Fund.
