Subscribe to the Inuit Art Quarterly


The Inuit Art Quarterly is the only publication that focuses solely on the vibrant and dynamic world of Inuit art. Published by the Inuit Art Foundation since 1986, this quarterly art magazine connects readers around the world with the Arctic by way of feature articles on well-known and emerging artists, timely and topical commentary and exclusive interviews.

The Winter 2017 issue of the Inuit Art Quarterly marks the end of the Inuit Art Foundation’s 30th year. To mark this significant milestone, this redesigned issue honours past achievements in Inuit art while looking forward to the groundbreaking new works and techniques being introduced. Our colourful cover story traces the creation and significance of outstanding murals adorning walls in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal—all created by young artists from Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU. In the accompanying feature, curator and writer Matthew Ryan Smith examines the importance of street art and graffiti to young Inuit artists and its impact in the South.

Other features include author and artist Priscilla Naunġaġiaq Hensley Holthouse’s thorough examination of Unipkaaġusiksuġuvik, an immersive performance installation created by Anchorage, Alaska-based Iñupiaq artist Allison Akootchook Warden, and a moving and illuminating interview with talented graphic artist Siassie Kenneally, conducted by gallerist Patricia Feheley of Feheley Fine Arts and reproduced in both Inuktut and English. Finally, our “Portfolio” provides an in-depth look at the creative process behind award-winning video game Never Alone and how it has changed the standard for Indigenous digital media creation and storytelling.

Other highlights of the issue include:

  • The legacy of trailblazing carver John Tiktak (1916-1981);
  • A profile of emerging artist Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter;
  • A detailed look at The Breathing Hole, a landmark play from Reneltta Arluk, the Stratford Festival’s first Indigenous director;
  • Reviews of exhibitions, publications and much more…
