As new seasons of television shows like Game of Thrones and Letterkenney bring wintery landscapes to our summer programming, so too does the AGNS’s summer exhibition SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut.
The work of Nunatsiavummiut artists has long been left out of broader conversations of Inuit art, making this the first exhibition of its scale to showcase the work of makers and artists from Northern Labrador.
SakKijâjuk, which means “to see” in the region’s dialect of Inuktitut, highlights the rich and distinct visual traditions in Nunatsiavut and explores the diversity of the region’s contemporary art.
