The McMichael Canadian Art Collection is pleased to present a retrospective of over 80 drawings and ephemera by Itee Pootoogook (1951–2014) as part of an ongoing analysis of the careers of contemporary Inuit trailblazers.
One of the key members of the third-generation of Inuit artists from Kinngait (Cape Dorset), Pootoogook contributed to the transformation and reshaping of the creative traditions that were successfully pioneered in the second half of the 20th century by members of the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative at Kinngait Studios.
This exhibition is curated by Dr. Nancy Campbell.
