Snap! Crackle! Inuit Pop Art!

Inuit Art Quarterly - - CONTENTS - by Cass Gar­diner

Snoopy, Don­ald Duck and Bat­man— these me­dia fig­ures are rarely as­so­ci­ated with Inuit life or fine art, yet they, and fig­ures like them, con­tinue to ap­pear across graphic and sculp­tural works. Of­fer­ing in­sights into the emer­gence of these pop­u­lar icons, this Fea­ture ex­am­ines how south­ern cul­ture per­me­ates life in the North and the so­phis­ti­cated ways Inuit artists grap­ple with its in­creas­ing pres­ence.
