Canada Goose Arc­tic Gallery at the Cana­dian Mu­seum of Na­ture

Inuit Art Quarterly - - NEWS -

On June 21, 2017, the Cana­dian Mu­seum of Na­ture will open the new, per­ma­nent Canada Goose Arc­tic Gallery to co­in­cide with Na­tional Abo­rig­i­nal Day. A high­light of the new space is a mu­ral cre­ated by Inuk artist Nancy Saun­ders, who goes by the artist name Niap. The win­ner of a juried com­pe­ti­tion, the artist will cre­ate a unique largescale work that re­flects her mix of ur­ban street art and tra­di­tional Inuit sub­ject mat­ter, fea­tur­ing colour­ful, geo­met­ric shapes and graph­ics over­laid with nar­ra­tive im­agery.
