From the Author
Many people have been instrumental in the writing of this publication. I acknowledge the professionalism of the entire team at the Art Canada Institute, especially Sara Angel, Meg Taylor, and Kendra Ward, for the opportunity to share the spectacular work of Shuvinai Ashoona with a broader public. I thank York University’s Visual Art & Art History Department and my doctorate advisors Dr. Anna Hudson, Dr. Sarah Parsons, and Dr. Gerald McMaster, who are critical to my presentation. Special thanks to Patricia Feheley and Brad van der Zanden at Feheley Fine Arts for their knowledge, assistance, and encouragement. The people at Dorset Fine Arts have been an invaluable resource as well as my colleagues at the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative in Kinngait. A special thanks to William Ritchie for his valuable insight and deep experience and William Huffman for his encouragement. I respect my many colleagues at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, and The Power Plant, who have offered me many opportunities to present the work of Inuit artists within their galleries. Most importantly is Shuvinai Ashoona, for her honesty and friendship. Artists are the core, the reason, and the joy of all curatorial work.
