SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut – Nunatsiavut produces art that is distinct within the world of Canadian and circumpolar Inuit art. Inuit artists and craftspeople from Nunatsiavut have traditionally used stone and wood for carving; fur, hide, and sealskin for wearable art; and saltwater seagrass for basketry, as well as wool, metal, cloth, beads and paper. In recent decades, they have produced work in a variety of contemporary art media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video, and ceramics, while also working with traditional materials in new and unexpected ways. SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut is the first major exhibition on the art of the Labrador Inuit.
Northern Narratives: Cape Dorset Prints – This exhibition includes print images from 17 Inuit artists published by the Kinngait Studios Cape Dorset during the late 1950s and into the 1970s. This project focuses on stories of traditional Inuit life exploring themes of hunting, travel, wildlife and the spiritual power of Canada’s North.
60th Anniversary: West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative – The West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative was established in 1959 in Cape Dorset. The first annual Cape Dorset print collection was released the same year, containing images produced by Inuit artists in the region. This exhibition includes prints and a selection of catalogues documenting the Annual Graphics Collections produced since 1959 by the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative’s Kinngait studio in Cape Dorset.
Recent Acquisitions – This exhibition features a selection of historical, modern and contemporary art showcasing key areas in which the collection has been developed. Recent collecting areas include art by artists of Anishnaabe and Inuit ancestry, and art from the Windsor-Essex region and western Canada.
Look Again! Celebrating the AGW Collection at 75 Years – Includes many of your favorite works and those which have truly defined the Gallery’s collection as high quality. Notably enriched in this exhibition is the Gallery’s continuing commitment to Indigenous histories.
