When: June 17-Sept. 10 2017
Take a journey up north through SakKijâjuk ("to be visible"), the first exhibition of its size and scale to highlight work from the Nunatsiavut region. The autonomous area is claimed by the Inuit people of Newfoundland and Labrador, and it achieved self-government in 2005. The Inuit artists and crafters have used a variety of traditional materials, such as stone, wood, fur, beads and saltwater seagrass. The results are everything from carvings to wearable art to basketry. The AGNS will also display more contemporary works, including painting, photography, ceramics and video.
