African Gallery

Season Launch Reception
Thursday 2 May 2019

This exhibition features a selection of Puvirnituq prints from the 1960s donated by Margaret McGowan (Artsci’78), a passionate collector of Nunavik prints and supporter of Indigenous art research at the gallery. Showcasing stone cut and relief prints made during the first decade of the studio’s activity, the exhibition includes an array of rare experimental prints from 1961 that grew out of the community’s first print workshops held in that year. Graphic works by Juanisialu Irqumia, Annie Mikpigak, Levi Qumaluk and Syollie Amituk, among others, are featured.
