Printed Textiles from Kinngait Studios, opened Dec. 7 in partnership with the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative. It presents the story of a group of Inuit artists who created a collection of bold graphic textiles in the 1950s and 1960s.
“There is very little information about this initiative. It was short lived, but it was a very important part of Inuit art and culture. The impact of this textile initiative is important on Inuit graphic art,” said Roxanne Shaughnessy, the museum’s senior curator.Venue Info:
