An all-Inuit team of guest curators will create the inaugural exhibitions of the WAG Inuit Art Centre, marking the first time a curatorial team will represent all four regions of Inuit Nunangat (the Inuit regions of Canada). Lead curator, Dr. Heather Igloliorte, is joined by emerging curators and artists Asinnajaq, Kablusiak, and Krista Ulujuk Zawadski to amaze you with the depth and breadth of Inuit art.
The Centre will also be a training hub for Indigenous arts workers, building capacity through internships, mentorships and residencies. Programs will create arts-career opportunities in Indigenous communities and in cultural and academic centres across Canada – including at the WAG Inuit Art Centre, where some of the program graduates will be hired.
