SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut

Opens May 25

SakKijâjuk means "to be visible" in the Nunatsiavut dialect of Inuttitut. This striking group show is the first major exhibition of the breathtaking and long-hidden art of the Labrador Inuit. Their stories, memories, and knowledge were little known outside the region, until now. See 85 works by four living generations of contemporary artists and craftspeople with video, photography, sealskin-sewing, painting, saltwater grass basketry, stone sculpture, and much more! Presented in celebration of the future Inuit Art Centre at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

Featuring work by 47 artists

Guest curated by Dr. Heather Igloliorte, co-chair of the WAG's Indigenous Advisory Circle and Assistant Professor of Aboriginal art history at Concordia University in Montreal.
