BLIZZARD: Emerging Northern Artists

About the Program

BLIZZARD: Emerging Northern Artists looks at Indigenous artists working in the North who are using their traditions to forge new ideas around contemporary art. The exhibition and publication, in development for over two years, looks at the influence of Inuit and Northern traditional art forms and how these are translated by a younger generation of artists whose roots are in the North. How does the landscape and context of the North influence the visions of its young artists and how do our interpretations of that dreaming—our preconceptions about the North—influence our understanding? Curated by artist/curator Tania Willard, BLIZZARD looks at a younger generation of Northern artists breaking barriers by questioning relationships that tie North and South.

The BLIZZARD: Emerging Northern Artists book launch occurred on March 22, 2013.
