Join in celebrating the incredible talent of the three Inuit artists who have each received the Kenojuak Ashevak Memorial Award (KAMA). During this roundtable discussion featuring Laakkuluk WIlliamson Bathory (2018), Tarralik Duffy (2021), and Ningiukulu Teevee (2023), the artists will engage with one another’s works, visions, and the lasting impact of Kenojuak Ashevak’s legacy on their careers.
The Kenojuak Ashevak Memorial Award is a biennial prize that supports the practice of an Inuk artist by facilitating opportunities for artistic development and career growth. It was established in 2014 by generous members of the Inuit art community. The award honours the life and work of the late Kenojuak Ashevak, and her unparalleled contributions to the cultural life and arts of Inuit Nunangat and beyond by providing funding to artists to expand their careers and reach new audiences.
