This exhibition of new textile works by Baker Lake artist Janet Nungnik (b.1954) was produced over a period of more than 15 years. Nungnik’s embroidered and appliqued images tell her life story and that of her people, the Padlermiut, a small group of inland dwelling Inuit whose traditional territory lay to the south of Baker Lake, Nunavut.
The McMichael Canadian Art Collection is pleased to present a retrospective of over 80 drawings and ephemera by the late Itee Pootoogook (1951 – 2014) as part of an ongoing analysis of the careers of contemporary Inuit trailblazers.
Exhibition, UPCOMING EXHIBITION
Louie Palu’s (b. 1968, Toronto) project documents the vestigial legacies of the Cold War and the increased military presence in the Arctic today. The changes in the region are exacerbated by the many unknowns the Arctic faces, among them the warming of the planet. Taken as a whole, this series of photographs examines the growing geopolitical tensions and changing life around Inuit communities in one of the planet’s most extreme and challenging places.
