This exhibition features 39 works that chronicle the social, economic, and cultural realities of Inuit life in the Canadian North by Annie Pootoogook (Inuit, b. 1969). Her detailed drawings—outlined shapes in black filled with blocks of solid color—recall traditional Inuit drawings, while her subject matter reflects the unvarnished viewpoint of her generation that includes the integration of modern technology and domestic strife and tragedy.
