Until May 3
subsist brings together a selection of works that reflect political, economic, and social systems of subsistence in individual and collective continuation of cultural practices for survival. The exhibition explores the controversy of the seal hunt, western globalization policies and the historical and contemporary impacts of colonialism on land and health determinants for Indigenous peoples in Canada. Maureen Gruben’s new work, Breathing Hole, will be in dialogue with photography, drawings, sculpture, and installation. See works from Mark Igloliorte, Dana Claxton, Andrew Qappik, and Omalluq Oshutsiaq in tandem with a selection of works from the WAG’s extensive Inuit art.
