The new issue of the Inuit Art Quarterly is on newsstands today! Just in time for fall, this issue of the IAQ is themed around home in the broadest sense. Taking readers from coast-to-coast-to-coast, this issue’s features examine Nunatsiavut-born artist Mark Igloliorte and his work in Vancouver, the important place art plays in reconciliation as exemplified by the High Arctic Relocation Monuments by Looty Pijamini and Simeonie Amagoalik and a look inside Inuit artists’ studios throughout Canada.
Executive Director and Publisher Alysa Procida noted, “This issue responds to the complex ideas of home from nuanced perspectives, including the important work artist do in capturing and reflecting back to us the many spaces and places that become ‘home’. This can be especially fraught for Inuit artists, whose homes have seen rapid change over the last decades. The Inuit Art Foundation’s President Jimmy Manning also added, “After spending the summer outside on the land, the fall is a time to think about what ‘home’ means as we begin to settle back into our homes and communities.”
