Book Signing and Launch for Inuit Modern: The Samuel and Esther Sarick Collection
Sunday, November 7 2010, 1–3 pm at shopAGO
shopAGO invites you to meet curators Gerald McMaster and Ingo Hessel, and other contributors to Inuit Modern as well as artists featured in the publication.
This collection situates modern Inuit art within a larger framework that reinterprets the Canadian Arctic. Essays by leading Canadian scholars in the field, including Ingo Hessel, Gerald McMaster, Robert McGhee, Christine Lalonde, Heather Igloliorte, Dorothy Eber and Bernadette Driscoll Engelstad, examine the social, political and cultural transformation through the dynamic lens of colonial influence and agency. Inuit Modern also features interviews with David Ruben Piqtoukun and Zacharias Kunuk.
Co- published by Douglas & McIntyre and the Art Gallery of Ontario, this publication is to accompany the exhibition Inuit Modern: The Samuel and Esther Sarick Collection, opening at the Art Gallery of Ontario on April 2, 2011.
Exhibition organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario. Contemporary programming at the Art Gallery of Ontario is supported by Canada Council for the Arts.
