In a series of talks, the artists of Open Edition reflect on their work through the exhibition’s theme of looking back and looking forward. In the second iteration, Ningiukulu Teevee will be joined in conversation with the exhibition’s co-curator and CUAG Director, Sandra Dyck, to discuss printmaking in Kinngait (Cape Dorset) today.

Born in Kinngait in 1963, Ningiukulu Teevee has become one of Kinngait Studios most celebrated artists and has established a reputation as one of the Canadian art world’s major figures. Ningiukulu works primarily with coloured pencils and ink. Her images are derived primarily from her comprehensive knowledge of Inuit folklore, which she combines with often humorous images of westernized contemporary life in Nunavut. She was shortlisted for a Governor General’s award for her book Alego in 2009. Her drawings are found in many major collections including the McMichael Collection of Canadian Art, National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery of Ontario, Winnipeg Art Gallery and others.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome! CUAG is an accessible space, with barrier-free washrooms and elevator.

Discount parking passes ($4.00 flat rate) will be available for sale at the tunnel entrance commencing at 5:45 pm.
