From the Editor

Inuit Art Quarterly - - CONTENTS - Britt Gallpen Editor

To mark the oc­ca­sion, this mile­stone is­sue of the Quar­terly takes stock of what got us here and the ex­cit­ing road ahead. Inside, you’ll find fea­tures on beloved graphic artists Jessie Oonark, OC, RCA and Tim Pit­si­u­lak by cu­ra­tors Sarah Mil­roy and An­drew Hunter, re­spec­tively, as well as an ex­pan­sive, thought­ful piece on the needs of Inuit artists to­day by Inu­vialuit artist Abra­ham Anghik Ruben, OC. We are also pleased to share the Port­fo­lio “30 Artists to Know”, which brings to­gether artists span­ning more than two gen­er­a­tions. Fi­nally, we have in­cluded a se­lec­tion of short fea­tures that cap­ture a brief his­tory of IAF high­lights, the strate­gies and goals of our new­est pro­gram the Igloo Tag Trade­mark and a snap­shot of some of our thirty-year sub­scribers and their re­la­tion­ship with the IAQ. We are also ex­cited to of­fer, for the first time, a themed in­sert. This guide serves as an overview to col­lect­ing Inuit art, cur­rent trends as iden­ti­fied by ex­perts from coast to coast to coast and tips from life­long col­lec­tors on build­ing a col­lec­tion you will love. Fol­low­ing our sub­scriber sur­vey this past year, we are ex­cited to present the newly re­designed Quar­terly. Our an­niver­sary has pro­vided us with the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to give you more of what you’ve told us you love: in­creased num­ber of im­ages and ex­tended ed­i­to­ri­als, com­ple­mented with the clean and mod­ern de­sign you’ve come to ex­pect from the IAQ. In ad­di­tion, we have re­worked some of our sec­tions to in­te­grate more ro­bustly with our dig­i­tal space, the most no­tice­able of which is our Cal­en­dar, which we have largely moved on­line to bring you the most up-to-date in­for­ma­tion on up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tions and projects. In its place we bring you a be­hind the scenes look at se­lect ex­hi­bi­tions from the artists and cu­ra­tors them­selves. I’d like to thank our out­go­ing de­signer, Bar­bara Solowan of Ber­lin Stu­dio Inc., for her vi­sion in shap­ing the IAQ’s vis­ual pres­ence over the past three years and con­grat­u­late our new de­sign­ers, Tung, on a beau­ti­fully re­freshed de­sign. I hope you en­joy the changes in this is­sue.
