Keno­juak Ashe­vak on the Cana­dian Ten Dol­lar Bill

Inuit Art Quarterly - - NEWS -

This past April, the Bank of Canada’s Gov­er­nor Stephen S. Poloz and Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary to the Min­is­ter of Fi­nance the Hon­ourable Ginette Petit­pas Tay­lor un­veiled a com­mem­o­ra­tive $10 ban­knote, cel­e­brat­ing Canada’s 150th an­niver­sary of Con­fed­er­a­tion. The de­sign for the com­mem­o­ra­tive bill in­cor­po­rates Keno­juak Ashe­vak’s, OC, RCA (1927-2013), stone­cut and sten­cil print Owl’s Bou­quet (2007). Re­pro­duced as a holo­graphic ren­der­ing, the work can be found in the ban­knote’s trans­par­ent win­dow. This is only the sec­ond time an orig­i­nal art­work has been re­pro­duced on a Cana­dian ban­knote and the first time a work by an Inuk artist has been fea­tured.
