Sarah Milroy talks about Itee Pootoogook’s “Itee’s Kinngait”

Feheley Fine Arts held the exhibition Itee’s Kinngait from September 21 – October 10, 2013. The show featured new drawings by Kinngait artist Itee Pootoogook (1951–2014), based on photographs taken by his colleagues Bill Ritchie and Tim Pitsiulak. Pootoogook’s coloured pencil and ink drawings were completed in a photorealist style, emulating the medium of his original source material. As part of the Canadian Art Foundation’s Art Hop in 2013, curator and art writer Sarah Milroy spoke about Pootoogook’s new body of work at the gallery.
