Current Issue

The Legacies Issue  

Legacies are a thread that weaves through all IAQ issues. This Fall we decided to focus on legacy artists, their relationships to contemporary Inuit and the work Inuit artists put into establishing artist co-operatives and launching Inuit art into the global art community. Whether by inspiration or through intergenerational knowledge sharing, legacy artists have paved the way for contemporary Inuit artists and future creatives.

From Naullaq Arnaquq’s feature about seeing the artistry in the everyday tools and clothing created by her family, to the Portfolio spotlight on five Inuit art co-operatives, this issue is a window into the history and legacy of Inuit art and artists that continue to inspire. 

Are you an art collector? Or an Inuit Art Quarterly collector?
Since 1986, the Inuit Art Quarterly has been devoted to advancing and appreciating Inuit and circumpolar Indigenous arts. The back issues of our magazine testify to our focus on connecting readers around the world with the Arctic through the robust and thoughtful writing of Inuit and Indigenous writers. Maybe you’ve misplaced our history-making Nunatsiavut issue; maybe you didn’t subscribe in time to get last quarter’s copy. Either way, we can help.
