Ashoona, Pitseolak, Pootoogook and Toonoo in Sakahan at the National Gallery of Canada

We are thrilled to announce that Shuvinai Ashoona, Jamasie Pitseolak, Itee Pootoogook and Jutai Toonoo will be featured in Sakahan , the National Gallery of Canada's long-awaited exhibition of global indigenous art. One of the largest survey exhibitions of its kind ever to take place, Sakahan brings together over 100 works by 75 artists from around the world. Described as poetic, unexpected and challenging, the artworks in this ambitious exhibition document and interrogate distinct cultural and social issues. Curated by the NGC's Greg Hill, Christine Lalonde and Candice Hopkins, the exhibition features a day-long symposium that will address a range of topics pertaining to the role of contemporary indigenous art. Sakahan opens May 17 and continues through to September 2, 2013.
