Curated by Myung-Sun Kim

Inuuqatigiitsiarniq in Inuktitut is one of the core Inuit societal values and translates as ‘respecting others, relationships and caring for people.’ Created with Inuit youths from in Kinngait (Cape Dorset, Nunavut) and PA System, the collaborative works by Embassy of Imagination - prints, drawings, sculptures, and installation - animates the life of the north, and the complexities of community care, kinship, solidarity, and empathy. This exhibition includes a series of portraits wherein artists illustrates how they see themselves as well as each other through affirmations of love and care; speculative drawings of sea creatures realized from their imaginations put forth the possibilities for living amongst non-humans and humans. Together, the works in Inuuqatigiitsiarniq explore how intercultural communities from different places and histories can come together to respect and care deeply for each other through artmaking - one way of acting in solidarity with the Indigenous North.

Exhibition catalogue will be made available after the opening on the 21st and during the exhibition. To inquire about this exhibition or the artists, please email myung-sun@theatrecentre.org, or call 416-534-9261 for more information.
