My name is Christine Platt, and I just joined the MIA team as a Development Officer! I am excited to work on the Inuit Art Magazine, the Canadian Inuit Art Project and much more. I especially look forward to sharing knowledge and ideas on contemporary Inuit art with all of you.
Before joining MIA, I completed a Masters in Museum Studies and a Masters in contemporary Chinese art. I also worked for a contemporary art fund in the Netherlands, and I’ve volunteered at many museums while living and working around the world (including at MIA as a docent).
I hope that together with the MIA staff and volunteers, I will help to engage an even wider audience in learning and experiencing Inuit art. I particularly aim to help attract more collectors to enter the contemporary Inuit art market. The artworks featured at the museum and in the gallery express so much in form, style, emotion and cultural heritage, which could enhance many private and corporate collections and the personal life experiences of our visitors and friends.
I will write on the blog to tell you more about this as I collaborate on different projects in the museum. Stay tuned for more!
