Among All These Tundras, a title taken from the poem ‘My Home is in My Heart’ by famed Sámi writer Nils-Aslak Valkeapää, features contemporary art by Indigenous artists from around the circumpolar world.

CHANNEL 51: IGLOOLIK - Celebrating 30 Years of Inuit Video Art

Curated by: asinnajaq

A project of Isuma in partnership with Vtape, Toronto.

CHANNEL 51: IGLOOLIK, a project of Isuma in partnership with Vtape, Toronto, is the first large-scale tour of Igloolik Inuit video art from the Isuma and Arnait Women’s Video Collective. It celebrates a young cinematic tradition that has its own distinct voice and worldview, its own language, culture and traditions, history and stories, philosophy of education and knowledge sharing, relationship to land, conception of gender and social structures, relationship to space and time, and vision for the future.

Press Release: May G N: Occlusion Field & Kablusiak: Qiniqtuaq

Esker Foundation is pleased to present in our Project Space location this spring/summer season:

May G N
Occlusion Field
6 May - 21 July
In partnership with Untitled Art Society

Occlusion Field is a singular moment in time and space made of the stuff of trans defense mechanism: tattoos, liquid gender concepts, and hormonally transforming surfaces that come together to speak to an idiosyncrasy, a gestalt, a whole that transcends its constitutive parts. (high res images below)


Upcoming in the Project Space:

Kablusiak
Qiniqtuaq
29 July - 20 October


Qiniqtuaq (searching/looking) invites viewers to peer through a multi-eyed ghost sheet to witness a looping projection of a video collage screened in front of a piece of oil-stained cardboard. Qiniqtuaq is meant to evoke a dream-like state imaging a hypothetical place and time; a representation of what is felt but not known. Qiniqtuaq invites a presence of nostalgia, spectatorship, and diaspora. (high res images below)
