A Kind of Prayer presents the first-ever survey dedicated to the late Cree artist Kimowan Metchewais and his singular body of work on Indigenous identity, community, and colonial memory.


After his untimely death at age forty-eight in 2011, Metchewais left behind a wholly original and expansive body of photographic and mixed-media work. At the center of his practice is an extensive Polaroid archive, which addresses a range of themes--including the artist's body, performative self-portraiture, language, landscapes, and everyday subjects--and served as the source material for works in other media, such as painting and collage. Metchewais's exquisitely layered works offer a poetic meditation on his connection to home and land, while challenging conventional narratives and representations of Indigeneity.


Metchewais was a contemporary artist of stunning originality, and until now, his work has been woefully understudied, -published, and -exhibited. A Kind of Prayer is a comprehensive overview that showcases this essential artist's astonishing vision.
