L’exposition trace l’évolution et l’impact d’une initiative textile peu connue sur l’art graphique des Inuits.
The little-known story of a group of Inuit artists and printers who produced a collection of bold graphic textiles in Kinngait, Nunavut in the 1950s and 60s – a period of social change that disrupted traditional language and relationships to the land. These printed images preserve the legends, stories and ways of life from this time, offering a vital connection between the contemporary Inuit community and the creativity and resourcefulness of the artists and printers of previous generations.
