Description

When Annie Pootoogook (1969-2016) won the Sobey Art Award in 2006, she cracked the glass ceiling for Inuit art, securing its place in contemporary Canadian art discourse and establishing herself as an artist of international importance. Her achievement sparked critical discussion around contemporary art as well as the absence, and growing presence, of Inuit art: an important conversation that continues to this day.

The complex narratives weaving through her drawings offer a candid, unembellished view of life in the North. She depicted traditional Inuit culture coexisting with Nintendo consoles, frozen foods, and the televised image of Dr. Phil. Her arresting pencil crayon compositions, her unsentimental representation of Inuit life, became the foundation of the changing landscape of contemporary Inuit art.

Annie Pootoogook: Cutting Ice accompanies an exhibition organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the gallery of record for works on paper from Annie Pootoogook’s Inuit community of Kinngait (Cape Dorset). Under the direction of Nancy Campbell, this publication and the exhibition serve to commemorate the life and work of a remarkable artist a year after her tragically early death. Campbell embraces and explores the rich complexities of Annie Pootoogook’s legacy that she created for those who follow her.
