Inuit in­tu­ition

Pasatiempo - - ON THE COVER -

Akun­nit­tinni: A Kin­ngait Fam­ily Por­trait, an ex­hibit that opens on Fri­day, Jan. 22, at the Mu­seum of Con­tem­po­rary Na­tive Arts, fea­tures the work of three mem­bers of a fam­ily of artists from the Cana­dian Arc­tic. Pit­se­o­lak Ashoona, her daugh­ter, Na­pachie Pootoo­gook, and her grand­daugh­ter, An­nie Pootoo­gook, are among the best-known Inuit artists from Cape Dorset. The women are con­nected by their em­pha­sis on nar­ra­tive and au­to­bi­og­ra­phy — themes that be­came more raw and hon­est with each sub­se­quent gen­er­a­tion. Also open­ing at MoCNA on Fri­day are shows fea­tur­ing works by El­iza Naranjo Morse and Lloyd Kiva New. On the cover is Ashoona’s 1976 stone­cut and sten­cil print, Fam­ily Camp­ing in Tu­niq Ru­ins; cour­tesy MoCNA.
