Kiwa: Pacific Connections

Kiwa: Pacific Connections

Northwest Coast Group Exhibition

September 20 - October 20, 2003


“Kiwa — Pacific Connections” could not be complete without the honouring of the Maori by the artists and representatives from the Northwest Coast nations. The catalyst for this exhibition was to express the many cultural similarities, allegiances, and shared friendships that exist between the Maori and the people of the Northwest Coast. A number of Northwest Coast artists have visited Aoteaora (New Zealand) over the years and were enthusiastic in their desire to welcome the Kiwa exhibition to North America. The criteria suggested by the artists was to make the work inspired by their experiences with the Maori or based on the shared reality of living on the Pacific Rim.

Keewatin Women In Stone - Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetuk

Keewatin Women In Stone - Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetuk

March 14 - April 4, 2015

'Keewatin Women in Stone' celebrates the lives of two very different Nunavut artists from the Keewatin region north-west of the Hudsons Bay. Camille Iquilq (1963-2005) and Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetok (1934-2012) are representative of two generations and very different upbringings. Lucy was born on the land and experienced the nomadic and traditional way of life before settling in Arviat, whereas Camille was born and raised within the relative comfort of the community of Baker Lake. The collection is a selection of at least 30 stone sculptures from each artist, with pieces ranging from the early 1990s forward. The exhibition contrasts their individual styles yet highlights the same shared values with relationships and the strong bonds within the family.
