This month we are co-presenting two hot nights of Indigenous music at Toronto’s Gardiner Museum!
The concerts are part of the programming around the current Kent Monkman exhibit and we’re thrilled to be part of the mix.
Kent Monkman’s site specific installation at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, Ontario, entitled The Rise and Fall of Civilization includes a nine-foot cliff structure, taxidermied bison, a statue of Monkman’s two-spirited, trickster alter ego, Miss Chief, and artistically it sits in direct contention with Picasso, primitivism, and modernism.
And in conjunction with this presentation, the Gardiner has a series of related programming including these two nights of Indigenous music that we were stoked to curate.
Friday November 7th, you’ll see Irish-Ojibwe outlaw-country singer-songwriter Sean Conway and Métis folk/roots singer-songwriter Amanda Rheaume. Both artists will have their bands in tow and RPM’s own Jarrett Martineau will host the night.
These concerts are free with half price admission into the Gardiner and start at 7pm both nights! Come early to explore Kent’s work and the rest of what the museum has to offer. See you there, Toronto!
