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.
