Join us at the gallery to celebrate the opening of our double feature exhibitions Rarities: Coveted Cape Dorset Prints and Fusion: Collaborative Drawings from Kinngait. Tune in for an art talk at 3:00 pm with Pat Feheley who will speak on the longstanding practice of collaboration at the Kinngait Studios, in both printmaking and drawing.
About “Rarities: Coveted Cape Dorset Prints”
We are pleased to present a hand-picked selection of sold out prints from the Cape Dorset Annual Print Collections. These coveted graphics represent some of the best of Inuit printmaking, celebrating 63 years of the incredible innovation and creativity that propelled the art-form to international recognition. Highlights include works by Annie Pootoogook, Sheojuk Etidlooie, Qavavau Manumie and many more.
About “Fusion: Collaborative Drawings”
During an experimental two-year period, artists working at the Kinngait Studios created a number of incredible collaborative drawings. Using the “exquisite corpse” method coined by the Surrealist art movement, the process involved two or more artists collaborating a drawn composition on paper, sometimes without seeing the portion drawn by the previous artist. Featuring contributions by Shuvinai Ashoona, Ningiukulu Teevee, Saimaiyu Akesuk, Johnny Pootoogook, Ooloosie Saila, and many others.
