The Gardiner Volunteer Committee invites you to the annual Joy of Ceramics fundraising luncheon, featuring guest speaker Kent Monkman. Monkman is a Cree artist who is widely known for his provocative interventions into Western European and American art history. He explores themes of colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience– the complexities of historic and contemporary Indigenous experiences–across a variety of media including painting, film/video, performance, and installation.
Join us for refreshments, raffles, music, and a silent auction featuring an assortment of outstanding experiences and more. You’re also invited to join our docents for a tour of select pieces from our museum collection.
A superb three course meal with wine catered by The Food Dudes.
Each table will have a unique ceramic centrepiece made especially for the Joy of Ceramics by artist Andrea Vuletin. Centrepieces will be available for purchase after the luncheon.
Kent Monkman will speak about how he engages with museum collections, giving an overview of his engagement with objects ranging from ceramics, oil paintings, sculpture, and object artifacts. He will also touch on his current project, a commission by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and how The Met’s extensive collection is informing the creation of two large-scale paintings.
