As I mentioned in a previous post, MIA has some exciting changes in the works which are coming along very nicely. You might know that we are making physical changes to our space by creating a multi-use visible storage area that will house various pieces from our collection on display for visitors. The construction is coming along nicely and we hope to have this ready to use in the very near future.
Next, we updated our current display of Inuit dolls to reflect their relationship with other textile arts, including wall hangings and clothing construction. Finally, we are making room for our newest special exhibition Bold Images In Stone: Stone Cut Printmaking in Ulukhaktok, featuring rarely seen stone blocks used in the print studio in Ulukhaktok (Holman). The exhibition will be opening soon, so keep your eyes on the blog for more behind-the-scenes updates
