An Innovative Platform
A key goal of the IAQ Profiles is to broaden public awareness of the history of Inuit art and to connect interested researchers with artists and artworks while providing artists a supportive platform through which to showcase their CVs. This includes artwork, artist statements, past and upcoming exhibitions, resources for further research and more. All public contributions to profiles are credited to keep a record of information, and provide possible options for further research.
The IAQ Profiles departs significantly from previous attempts to provide biographies for Inuit artists, since it was designed for artists first. The platform showcases artists’ profiles, exhibition and publication histories and images of artwork. Unlike any other attempted platforms, artists control their profiles and explicit written permission is required from artists before publication.
