New Cu­ra­tor at the Cana­dian Mu­seum of His­tory

Inuit Art Quarterly - - NEWS -

Linda Grus­sani has re­turned to the Cana­dian Mu­seum of His­tory as Cu­ra­tor of Abo­rig­i­nal Art to man­age one of the most im­por­tant col­lec­tions of Indige­nous art in the coun­try. Grus­sani’s ap­point­ment marks a wel­comed end to a long­stand­ing va­cancy, left by Lee-Ann Martin (for­mer cu­ra­tor of con­tem­po­rary Abo­rig­i­nal art) and Nor­man Vo­rano (for­mer cu­ra­tor of Inuit art). The decision was made to com­bine the two roles, leav­ing the post un­filled for months. Pre­vi­ously, Grus­sani worked at the mu­seum as an in­tern over a decade ago.

Grus­sani comes to this new role fol­low­ing her ten­ure as the di­rec­tor of the Abo­rig­i­nal Art Cen­tre (formerly the In­dian and Inuit Art Cen­tres) at Indige­nous and North­ern Af­fairs Canada. A grad­u­ate of Car­leton Univer­sity, Grus­sani has an ex­ten­sive record of cu­rat­ing and ac­quir­ing Inuit art. Her first ex­hi­bi­tion, Inuit Myths of the Sea and Sky: The Tyler/Brooks Col­lec­tion of Inuit Art was mounted at the Car­leton Univer­sity Art Gallery in 2000.
