Inspired by the history of the iconic Calgary Stampede at the time of its 100th anniversary in 2012, The Big Four is a new work by acclaimed Canadian artist Kent Monkman commissioned by Glenbow Museum. Monkman plays with numerology in the title of the exhibition: the number four refers to the financial backers of the first Calgary Stampede and is also of symbolic importance to many indigenous nations, including the Blackfoot of southern Alberta. The installation centers on four “junker” automobiles, that function as display cases for video works, native-themed collectables and artifacts from Glenbow’s collection.
