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 Fall 2018 issue of the Inuit Art Quarterly is dedicated to one of the most influential materials in the modern Inuit art industry: paper. From sketches and prints to experimental drawings and more, this issue adds another important chapter to the history of this integral material and the established and emerging artists who employ it.

Our cover story on the late Annie Pootoogook by Caoimhe Morgan-Feir revisits the artist’s often-overlooked psychological and spiritual self-portraits to explore another side of the many stories surrounding her meteoric rise, marking the first-time the celebrated graphic artist has been featured on the cover of the magazine. Accompanying features include Inuk writer and artist Adina Tarralik Duffy’s provoking meditation on the power of self-portraiture in articulating identity through self-representation and a unique portfolio highlighting nine cutting-edge graphic artists who work with ink, linocut, coloured pencil, stencil and more.

An interview with Eric Anoee Jr. illuminates the discovery of a notebook filled with drawings produced in the late-1930s by his father Eric Anoee Sr. that captured the rapidly changing landscape of Arviat, NU, and provides a broader look at the role paper has played in the history of contemporary Inuit art, while Katheryn Wabegijig discusses the chance discovery of early works by Agnes Nanogak Goose, Helen Kalvak, Mark Emerak and more in three safes in Ulukhoktok, Inuvialuit Settlement Region, NT, as well as the ongoing project to digitize the collection.

Finally, closing the issue, a detailed look at the upcoming exhibition Alootook Ipellie: Walking Both Sides of an Invisible Border by co-curator Christine Lalonde reveals the ongoing relevance of the artist and writer Alooktook Ipellie on the occasion of his first major retrospective.

Other highlights of the issue include:

  • A round-up of five playful works that explore language, verse, letters, syllabics and more;
  • A profile of emerging artist Damien Iquallaq;
  • A look at the drawings of noted carver Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetok;
  • Reviews on exhibitions across Canada and much more…
