Check out this fascinating essay on CBC Arts about Annie Pootoogook’s exhibit at Toronto’s Power Plant Gallery. As the piece’s author, David Balzer, writes, “Pootoogooks new exhibit at Torontos Power Plant is a debut in more ways than one. Not only is it her first at a Canadian public gallery, but its also the first time the Power Plant, Canadas pre-eminent venue for contemporary art, has dedicated a major show to an Inuit artist.”
His essay explores three generations of Inuit women artists, the north/south divide many Canadians don’t even think about, and some of the gendered issues Inuit women face, which Pootoogook deals with in hter work. The piece is accompanied by some of Pootoogook’s beautiful artwork.
