Walk & Talk: Curatorial Tour of Qautamaat
Explore the exhibition Qautamaat with curator Taqralik Partridge and writer Emily Henderson as they offer a talk and tour highlighting the stories, ideas, and practices associated with the “Inuit everyday” that informs the work of over 80 artists and makers on view. Capturing acutely Inuk sensibilities, the exhibition highlights how such diverse images and objects represent the most powerful forms of Inuit expression in the public sphere today.
This program is free to attend and will feature refreshments.
Qautamaat is organized and presented with the support of Canadian Heritage through the Museums Assistance Program.
