Inuit Art Quarterly, long regarded as one of the most important sources of information on the art and artists of Canada’s North, is back.
The magazine was launched in 1986. But it stopped publishing in 2012 after the Inuit Art Foundation, responsible for the publication, shut down.
But now, Inuit Art Quarterly is back with a new issue focusing on reknowed Inuit aritst Kenojuak Ashevak who died in 2013.
Upcoming issues will focus on themes as diverse as circumpolar arts or the work and artists of Nunatsiavut, the Inuit self-governing region in the Atlantic Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
