The Relations Issue  

Relations—physical, familial, personal and cultural— play a shaping role in Inuit art. Echoes of artistic legacies appear across contemporary practices while the resurgence of traditional naming conventions illuminate the connections between individuals, families and communities from generation to generation.

Featuring one man's discovery of an artistic heritage from Agnes Nanogak Goose and Alec Aliknak Banksland, ITK President Natan Obed on cultural erasure in archival photographs, a virtual residency between Maureen Gruben and Sonya Kelliher-Combs, 6 circumpolar collage artists and more, the Relations issue navigates the shared links that bind us together.
