The Art Gallery of Ontario is spotlighting Indigenous artists starting in the new year.
The gallery will display works by Inuk artist Ningiukulu Teevee, known for her bold designs that often feature birds and animals, starting in mid-January. Later in the month, it will begin an exhibition of more than 60 works by Inuvialuk sculptor David Ruben Piqtoukun.
January will also see the opening of “We Are Story: The Canada Now Photography Acquisition” featuring newly acquired photos by 10 Canadians, including the Inuk multidisciplinary artist asinnajaq, the Nunavut-based photographer Robert Kautuk and Raymond Boisjoly.
In June, the AGO will display in a joint exhibition the works of two women who made names for themselves as impressionist painters; American Mary Cassatt and Canadian Helen McNicoll.
