What Do Inuit Artists Think of the WAG Inuit Art Centre?

Inuit artists Alina Tungilik, Goota Ashoona, Helen Kaloon and Melissa Attagutsiak, were in Winnipeg earlier this month to take part in the Crafted at the WAG.

They also took in the collection in the vaults and the progress of the Inuit Art Centre. The video holds their reflections on seeing the works in the vault, often recognizing works from family members and people in their community, and their feelings on the Inuit Art Centre.

  1. Alan Schacter says:

    This is certainly going to be a world class experience. In my time rarely did you get to interact with the Inuit people let alone get to see them in person. Their contribution to The Winnipeg Art Gallery will draw people from all around the world as well as fellow Canadians.
