Curated by Nancy G. Campbell

Shuvinai Ashoona has gained international recognition for work that straddles the worlds of contemporary art and Inuit art. A third-generation Inuk artist living in Kinngait, Nunavut, she is celebrated for her large-scale drawings, enigmatic subject matter, and collaborative projects with contemporary artists. Influenced by the place she lives, the people she works with, the world she takes in through the media, and her imagination, Shuvinai’s work overturns stereotypical notions of Inuit art. For more on Shuvinai Ashoona read Nancy G. Campbell’s Shuvinai Ashoona: Life & Work.


Dr. Nancy G. Campbell has been an independent curator of contemporary and Inuit art since 1993 and is currently a guest curator at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Dr. Campbell has worked for other institutions including The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto and the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre at the University of Guelph.
