Sneak Peak: New Jessie Kenalogak exhibition!

28 Oct

Things have been busy, busy here at MIA. We have prepared a new museum exhibition space which features beautiful drawings by Jessie Kenalogak from Qamani’tuaq (Baker Lake). These works have never been exhibited for public display and constitute a distinct group, produced over a period of several years while the artist was in Kangirqliniq (Rankin Inlet). There, she participated in the Kangirqliniq Centre for Arts and Learning’s programming and began to create distinct, colourful and intensely personal works.
