Telling a Story: The Art of Cape Dorset—Panel
August 21, 2016, 1:00 pm–2:00 pm| Free
IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) in partnership with Dorset Fine Arts, brings together Inuit art professionals and collectors for a discussion about Inuit art from Cape Dorset. Located in the heart of the Canadian Arctic, Cape Dorset is widely recognized as the Capital of Inuit art. The region’s distinctive creative output—particularly in stonecut and lithography—is produced at Kinngait Studios, the oldest fine art print shop in Canada. While focusing on the celebrated history and enduring significance of the Cape Dorset creative community, the discussion will explore Inuit art as a unique form of expression within the broader international contemporary art context.
Participating panelists include Inuit Art Collector Edd Guarino, Independent Curator and Writer and Curatorial Advisor for Documenta 14 Candice B. Hopkins (Tlingit), and Brooklyn Museum Associate Curator of Native American Art Susan Kennedy Zeller. Moderated by Dorset Fine Arts Marketing Manager William Huffman.
The initiative is made possible with the generous support of Canada Council for the Arts.
