SELECTED DRAWINGS BY SHUVINAI ASHOONA
ON VIEW UNTIL JULY 21, 2018
"When Shuvinai Ashoona started making drawings at the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative in the mid-1990s, many of the older artists were baffled by her interpretation of the world. As a third-generation Inuit artist from a famous family of artists, Shuvinai was encouraged and deeply influenced by her predecessors, yet her distinct sensibility and bold experimentation has brought new regard for Inuit art. Beginning in 2012 at the Sydney Biennale, her drawings have been exhibited internationally with the work of other contemporary Canadian artists."
