Join us for a lively conversation between emerging Inuk artist, Niap Saunders and WAG Associate Curator of Inuit Art, Jocelyn Piirainen on Thursday, November 18 at 12pm CST.

Learn about Niap’s art practice and her work featured in INUA, Qaumajuq’s inaugural exhibition.

About the artist:

Based in Montreal, QC, Niap (Nancy Saunders) is an award-winning multidisciplinary artist who divides her time between the city and her home community of Kuujjuaq, Nunavik—a place that continues to deeply influence her work. Working across media, Niap thoughtfully investigates her cultural heritage and identity as an Inuk woman through her practice. Working across painting, performance, sculpture and photography, Niap has produced a wide ranging body of work from murals to immersive installations to portraiture. In 2018, Niap was the recipient of the IAF’s Watt Scholarship and in 2019 she was featured on the cover of the Inuit Art Quarterly’s “Earth” issue. Her work has been collected by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Avataq Cultural Institute among others and has been exhibited across Canada.

This post is part of RBCxWAG: INUA Virtual Sessions, connecting you with Qaumajuq’s inaugural exhibition no matter where you are in the world! Watch for monthly programs with the artists and curators at wag.ca/inua-online.
