WAG-Qaumajuq – Ilavut (Entrance Hall)

Darlene Coward Wight, WAG-Qaumajuq Curator of Inuit Art talked about the new Inuit art centre with Rachel Ozerkevich of Art & Object.

“Since 1961, WAG has featured 215 exhibitions and published fifty-two catalogues on Inuit art. Throughout curator of Inuit art Darlene Coward Wight’s thirty-five-year-long career at WAG, she has participated in ninety-five of these shows.

Wight believes that the museum has been so successful in bridging cultural gaps because of their ongoing efforts to maintain dialogue with northern communities and artists.”
