Ceramic production in Canada’s North is unique to Kangiqliniq (Rankin Inlet). First introduced to this community through a government-run program in the 1960s and 70s, ceramics has experienced a resurgence over the past decades through the privately-run Matchbox Gallery.
Northern Visions illustrates how the artists of Rankin Inlet draw upon tradition to create new works that embody the attributes of the Inuit people: interconnectedness, resilience, strength, and creativity. This display highlights pieces from the Gardiner’s permanent collection and loans from a private collection, including works by Yvo Samgushak, Roger Aksadjuak, John Kurok, and Leo Napayok.
