36 United with the In­stru­ment: Pho­tog­ra­phy, Per­for­mance and the Legacy of Pia Arke

Inuit Art Quarterly - - CONTENTS - Charissa von Har­ringa

De­spite her sta­tus as a pi­o­neer­ing fig­ure in Nordic art his­tory, the late Inuit-Dan­ish artist and in­no­va­tor Pia Arke is largely un­known in North Amer­ica. Trac­ing the land­mark works of her ca­reer, this fea­ture out­lines the com­plex ways the artist re­con­fig­ured the lan­guage of ethnog­ra­phy to pro­duce a vis­ual ver­nac­u­lar all her own. The IAQ is de­lighted to in­tro­duce this im­por­tant artist.
