Inuit Art Quarterly

Without you, there would be no IAQ


The Inuit Ar t Quarterly helps to bring untold stories to light, and helps artists gain new visibility. One of the most basic ways for artists to access opportunit­ies is by maintainin­g complete, profession­al biographie­s of their career accomplish­ments. However, Inuit artists have long been discourage­d from maintainin­g their own biographie­s: of the 13,000 Inuit artists working today, only 4% have up-to-date, complete biographie­s. With your donations, the IAQ Profiles is helping to fill this gap.

Because of the incredible donors below, 117 new ar tists will have up-to-date, complete biographie­s in the coming months. Thank you to First Arts for supporting this campaign with matching funds, and to all the generous donors listed below. Thank you!

Artists today are working in different mediums and exploring different topics in their work. I’m excited to join the IAF Board of Directors and work with other members of the Inuit art community to help artists. I was supported early in my career through Inuit Art Foundation programs and I would like to thank the IAF for the years of support they have given to me. I look forward to working with them to support a new generation of artists. What is more important than keeping the culture alive through the arts?” MICHAEL MASSIE, CM, RCA
