Join us for the opening reception of Qaggiq: Gathering Place. This exhibition brings together a selection of video works by the internationally renowned Isuma artists’ collective. Officially founded in 1990 by Zacharias Kunuk, Paul Apak Angilirq, Pauloosie Qulitalik, and Norman Cohn in Igloolik, Nunavut, this first ever Inuit production company produces video from an Inuit point of view, which includes language, story telling, and ways of thinking. The exhibition at the Art Museum focuses on the expansive media activist project of Isuma and is produced in partnership with the Toronto Biennale of Art on the occasion and as extension of Isuma’s participation at the 58th International Art Biennale in Venice.
