Celebrated for her large-scale drawings, enigmatic subject matter, and collaborative work with contemporary artists, Shuvinai Ashoona (b. 1961) is a third-generation Inuit artist living in Kinngait, Nunavut. The dramatic changes in the North—the shift from life on the land to settled communities and access to popular culture—are reflected in her work, which overturns stereotypical notions of Inuit art.
Shuvinai Ashoona: Life & Work provides a comprehensive overview of Ashoona’s key works, style and techniques, and the significance and critical issues addressed through her diverse and imaginative practice.
