Date: Thursday, April 10, 2014
Time: 7 PM to 9 PM

Celebrating the unique legacy of long-running Matchbox Gallery in Kangiqliniq (Rankin Inlet), The Matchbox Gallery: A Retrospective looks at the wide range of artistic production from one studio. Most well known for being the only active ceramics-producing studio in the North, the Matchbox Gallery’s artists also produce two-dimensional works on paper. Both art forms are influenced by the studio’s particular collaborative approach, a facet of the work that is rarely explored in depth.

MIA’s Curator (Alysa Procida), The Matchbox Gallery’s Director (Jim Shirley) and artist Pierre Aupilardjuk will give opening remarks at 7:30 PM.
