Inuit Art Quarterly
The Interiors Issue
Interiors are essential to lived experience in the Arctic, from domestic scenes denoting intimacy and kinship, to prints diagraming the communal splitting of meat. Interiors not only provide shelter and house people, they foster relationships between people, and between people and objects.
Featuring an examination of Kinngait interior portrayals, an in-depth look at the virtual reality work of Nyla Innuksuk, photographers Brian Adams, Jennie Williams, Chris P. Sampson and Taqralik Partridge on the view from their homes and depictions of arctic interiors across mediums, this issue is a testament to the powers our interiors hold.
The Inuit Art Foundation is your home for Inuit art
As the only national organization dedicated to supporting Inuit artists working in all media and geographic areas, the Inuit Art Foundation has sought to empower and support Inuit artists’ self-expression and self determination, while increasing the public's access to and awareness of artists’ work for more than 31 years.
For over three decades, the IAF's flagship program has been the award-winning Inuit Art Quarterly (IAQ). Focused on the arts and artists of Inuit Nunangat, the IAQ is the only publication dedicated to the advancement and appreciation of Inuit and circumpolar Indigenous arts and is widely considered one of the most significant voices for Indigenous art in the world. The IAQ’s reach includes the print publication, the IAQ Online and the IAQ Profiles.
The IAF also manages the iconic Igloo Tag Trademark which has been protecting Inuit artists from fraud and cultural appropriation since 1958, grants the Kenojuak Ashevak Memorial Award as well as the Watt Scholarship to ensure Inuit voices are amplified and lead discussions of Inuit art.
