The collection of Inuit art held by the Winnipeg Art Gallery is extraordinary by any standard: its geographic range, diverse media, and its size have brought international renown to the collection of 11,000 artworks. As the WAG celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2012–2013, this major exhibition of 250 artworks will reveal the scope of the collection and will feature many of the Gallery’s treasures as it marks this important milestone. Organized chronologically, the exhibition will demonstrate the genesis and evolution of contemporary Inuit art from 1949 to the present day: from carvers in the 1950s, such as Johnny Inukpuk, to later story-tellers in stone, such as Davidialuk Alasua Amittu, and in whale bone such as Karoo Ashevak; from pioneer graphic artist, Jessie Oonark, to graphic artists working today in new and personal idioms, such as Shuvinai Ashoona. The exhibition will be curated by WAG Curator of Inuit Art, Darlene Coward Wight and will be a celebration of creativity that has had many transformations over six decades.
Five winners will each receive a pair of tickets to WAG’s Creation & Transformation: Defining Moments in Inuit Art Exhibit running January 24 – April 14, 2013.
