About the Event

ᖃᓪᓗᓈᖅᑕᐃᑦ ᓯᑯᓯᓛᕐᒥᑦ Printed Textiles from Kinngait Studios  presents the little-known story of a group of artists and printmakers  who produced a collection of graphic textiles in Kinngait (formerly Cape  Dorset), Nunavut in the 1950s and ’60s—a period of social change that  disrupted traditional language and relationships to the land.

Made for interior décor during a period when artist-designed textiles  were popular in North America and Europe, these mid-century designs  depict legends, stories and traditional ways of life. They provide vital  points of connection between contemporary Inuit community members and  the creativity and resourcefulness of previous generations.
