Feb 9-Mar 9 Stories Of My Life: Print Editions by Elisapee Ishulutaq. Focusing on works produced within the last decade, Stories of My Life: Print Editions by Elisapee Ishulutaq will comprise 16 etchings, all of which were produced in collaboration with Montreal’s Studio PM. The exhibition will include four new images produced within the last year of the artist’s life and now being shown here for the first time. Also included are Ishulutaq’s series of monumentally scaled prints from 2016. Picturing the life and memories that she knew from her childhood growing up on southern Baffin Island, the works in the exhibition constitute the late Pangnirtung artist’s boldly expressive tribute to the traditions of Inuit culture and their ongoing relevance in today’s world.
Now in its 42nd year of operation, the Marion Scott Gallery has a long history of showcasing the best of contemporary art from the Canadian North. Specializing in both new and historical expressions from the Arctic in a range of media, the Gallery is committed to positioning the work of Canada’s Inuit artists within a national and international contemporary artistic framework. We work closely with a select group of contemporary artists from Cape Dorset, Baker Lake and other northern communities, presenting their work in both solo and thematic exhibitions with the aim of bringing their unique visions and dynamic sensibilities to the public’s attention.
