The Art of Play
This exhibition examines contemporary game-play primarily as it relates to Inuit, but also in a wider context. We look back at the history of game-play in the Arctic and also at non-Inuit games that have helped to define modern concepts of the form. We ask these questions: Are (all) games art? Are these traditions of play different? And if the answer(s) are yes, what does that mean?
This exhibition explores compelling new drawings from Kinngait (Cape Dorset). Featuring diverse works from established artists Tim Pitsiulak, Ningeokuluk Teevee, Qavavau Manumie and Shuvinai Ashoona, as well as newer voices Nicotye Samayualie and Pudlo Samajualie, Drawn invites viewers to explore these artist’s unique styles.
