About the Event

Want to see other Calgary MQG Members outside of the meeting?  Come join us as we explore the Glenbow's latest exhibit.

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.
