NEW EXHIBIT AT THE ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO

Venue: Art Gallery Ontario - 317 Dundas
Location: Toronto, ON
Opening June 16 at the Art Gallery of Ontario Tunirrusiangit: Kenojuak Ashevak and Tim Pitsiulak explores the enduring legacy of two of the biggest names in Inuit art. Curated by a team of Inuit artists and curators, the exhibition presents a dynamic vision of contemporary Inuit life through 111 drawings, sketches and rare works on paper from both artists.
Kenojuak Ashevak and Tim Pitsiulak represent two generations of Inuit artists whose blend of magic, realism and surrealism have challenged viewers to respond to their art and worldview in new ways. The team of curators – Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory, Koomuatuk Curley, Taqralik Partridge, and Jocelyn Piirainen – have continued these themes and views with their own artistic responses to the works on view, bringing the legacies of these two artists into the here and now.
