Chair­man’s Mes­sage

Inuit Art Quarterly - - CONTENTS - Sammy Kud­luk

This is­sue of the IAQ thinks about the idea of “home” and con­sid­ers how im­por­tant, dif­fi­cult and lay­ered this idea can be for Inuit. Amy Prouty’s fea­ture “A Mon­u­men­tal Saga: Rep­re­sent­ing and Re­mem­ber­ing the High

Arc­tic Re­lo­ca­tions” shows the ways in which art ex­plores how dif­fi­cult feel­ing at home can be for some Inuit who have had to cre­ate their lives within cir­cum­stances they did not choose. Tarah Hogue and Jor­dan Wil­son take another ap­proach in “Sight­lines and Sur­faces: The Art of Mark Iglo­liorte,” look­ing at how art can be used by artists to put Indige­nous voices and ob­jects at the cen­tre of cul­tural life, even within ur­ban cen­tres in south­ern Canada. “At Home in the Stu­dio” looks at where artists cre­ate their work and blends the land, Inuit com­mu­ni­ties and spa­ces through­out Canada to show­case an equally im­por­tant home: wher­ever their ideas and cre­ativ­ity take shape.

This is­sue also cov­ers a range of art forms and ge­og­ra­phy that are not as of­ten fea­tured in the pages of the mag­a­zine. Pho­tog­ra­phy and mixed me­dia col­lage sit along­side sculp­ture and print­mak­ing. Sim­i­larly, voices from Alaska and Inuit liv­ing in ur­ban cen­tres are fea­tured next to those through­out the North, show­ing the va­ri­ety of where Inuit call home. I hope you en­joy this is­sue of the Inuit Art Quar­terly.
