Dishing it up! 📡 Murals are powerful tools of community inclusion and representation, helping to bring images of brilliant colour for everyone to enjoy. In the first of our series on Inuit muralists, we’re taking a look at how Sheree McLeod used an unusual, high-tech canvas to illustrate a traditional community activity.

All Eyes on You 👀 In this print by Throwback Artist Spotlight Juanasialuk Irqumia, two hunters keep their eyes to the frozen ice as they search for signs of seal breathing holes. Irqumia, who is from Puvirnituq, Nunavik, QC, uses colour and texture to set the scene on a cold wintry day. It appears the hunters have already caught one seal each—here’s hoping their luck continues! 📸 Juanasialuk Irqumia “The Men Hunting by Walking on the Ice Looking for Seal Holes“ (1973) Courtesy IAF #tbt #ThrowbackThursday #juanasialukirqumia #Puvirnituq #povungnituk #Nunavik #Printmaking #Stonecut #InuitArt #hunting

Double Feature! This week’s Throwback Artist Spotlight, George Arluk, was born in Winnipeg, MB, and is now based out of Arviat, NU. Arluk began teaching himself how to carve at age nine and eventually became a well-known figure in the minimalist carving movement in the Kivalliq Region. His work often features groupings of human figures emerging from carefully polished stone. 📸 George Arluk “Two Figures” (1976-1977) Courtesy IAF #georgearluk #georgearlook #tbt #ThrowbackThursday #InuitArt #Arviat #Winnipeg #kivalliqregion #minimalism #Carving #Sculpture #InuitCarving #InuitSculpture

What does it mean to see yourself represented in art? As difficult as it can be for minority groups to find art that speaks to their own cultural backgrounds, those who sit in multiple groups rarely see any art that sits at the exact intersection of their identity. Afro-Inuk writer Jaelyn Terriak tells the story of what happened when she finally found her perfect art niche in the exhibition “They Forgot That We Were Seeds” at Carleton University Art Gallery. Read all about it at #IAQOnline 📷 Terriak with grandmother Ella Nora Ford (Terriak) in Nunatsiavut in 2000. #JaelynJarrett #KatherineTakpannie @cuartgallery #InuitArt #TheyForgotThatWeWereSeeds #Nunatsiavut #photography

Sew amazing. Inuit have been using beads for centuries to create intricate, exquisitely detailed amulets and decoration on clothes. When glass beads were introduced through early contact with Europeans, the beads were integrated into pre-existing Inuit bead culture and quickly became a common trade good. Since Italian glass bead making was added to UNESCO’s prestigious list of intangible cultural heritage last week, we thought it would be a good time to revisit the glass bead’s own intangible cultural heritage in Inuit art. Visit #IAQOnline to read anthropologist and curator Krista Ulujuk Zawadski’s account of Inuit beading practice from 900 CE to now. 📷 Lizzie Ittinuar “Beaded Amauti” (detail) (c. 1970) Courtesy @arcticmuseum #InuitArt #LizzieIttinuar #TaqralikPartridge @inukartprof @ulujuk #unesco #muranobeads #glassbeads #Beading #italy #venice #seedbeads #RenelttaArluk #EvaTalookiAliktiluk #Amautit #Sungaujait #sungaujaq #MadelineIvalu @inuitfutures

Uvagut TV will make history on Monday, becoming the first ever Indigenous-language channel in Canada. “As our elders pass away, we are fighting against time to keep Inuit culture and language alive for our children and grandchildren,” said Lucy Tulugarjuk of the importance of having an all-Inuktut channel.

Do you want to travel to the moon? This week’s #ThrowbackThursday Artist Spotlight, David Ruben Piqtoukun, has carved a shaman who has just come back from the familiar celestial body. The shaman, carved from a colourful, striated stone is tied down by a variety of rocks and holds two in his palms—perhaps souvenirs from his lunar trip? Ruben Piqtoukun seeks to share stories through his work, and has reiterated the imagery of the shaman and the moon many times throughout the years.

Have you found your 'bear'ings yet in the new year? We’re not sure if this lone polar bear has, outlined in stitches of red, purple and blue against the vast tundra of cream-coloured duffel. Today’s #ThrowbackThursday Artist Spotlight Rita Pamerok Maktar of Igluligaariuk (Chesterfield Inlet), NU, uses a minimal composition to highlight her careful stitches and smart colour combinations in this refined wall-hanging. 📸 Rita Pamerok Maktar “Polar Bear” (n.d.)

How to train your… seal? Today’s Artist Spotlight is Helen Rose Kaloon, textile artist living in Uqsuqtuuq (Gjoa Haven), NU. Kaloon is known for work that explores imagery from Inuit legends, as seen in this wall hanging featuring Nuliayok, also known as Sedna, the creator of all sea mammals. A key characteristic of Kaloon’s style is the highly decorated clothing her figures wear, a sartorial attention to detail which is transferred from her work as a seamstress.

Fueling up for a long night ahead? This week’s #ThrowbackThursday artist, Rebecca Pikuyar, of Iglulik, NU, gives us a caribou with a magnificent rack of antlers.
