Abstract
This exhibition celebrates the strength and contemporaneity of Pootoogook’s work but also uncovers how it has influenced her peers. Alongside works by Pootoogook, this exhibition will include works of art by Shuvinai Ashoona, Itee Pootoogook, Jutai Toonoo, Ohotaq Mikkigak and Siassie Kenneally, showing how Annie Pootoogook made it possible to begin a different conversation that celebrates Inuit art in new ways in Canada and the world. Bringing these artists’ works and words together in the Cutting Ice exhibition, will celebrate Annie Pootoogook as an important creative catalyst in contemporary art.

Abstract
Pertains to a publication showcasing artistic pieces from a variety of Inuit artists in Canada. The publication provides images of Inuit carvings, as well as other various forms of artistic expression. While the publication seeks to tell the story of the art, it is lacking Inuit voices and thus carries an innate bias.
