INUA Sneak Peek

INUA is the inaugural exhibition of Qaumajuq, the new Inuit art centre at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

In this sneak peek, each co-curator speaks about where they come from, through the art: Dr. Heather Igloliorte, asinnajaq, Krista Ulujuk Zawadski, and Kablusiak.

Presented by RBC, INUA features 100 artworks by more than 90 Inuit artists, from digital media and installation art to mixed-media sculpture, painting, and photography.

    It’s exciting to see this new gallery open. However, for us who live so far away, BC’s Gulf Islands in our case, we would love to have a virtual tour of the gallery itself, not just photo’s of the specific pieces. How the art is presented and arrayed is often a significant part of the experience. For example, almost all new listings on real estate websites (e.g. realtor.ca) provide 3D tours of the listed home. Something like that for each of your exhibits would be wonderful. Maybe that could be marketed as a benefit of membership, thereby encouraging people (such as me) to become a paying member, even if I never have the opportunity to visit the gallery in person.
