Journey Into Fantasy – Exhibition of Pudlo Pudlat, opening June 20, 2015

Opening JunPainting Journey into Fantasy by Pudlo Pudlate 20, 2015, Journey into Fantasy, in Inuktitut, Ingirrajut Isumaginnguaqtaminnut, features the work of Inuk artist, Pudlo Pudlat (1916-1992) and celebrates the one-year mark for the collaboration with York University in the multi-partner project, Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage (MICH).  As a MICH partner, McMichael Canadian Art Collection is working to digitize drawings from the Cape Dorset Archive (1959-89), on long-term loan from the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative in Cape Dorset, Baffin Island.

By creating digital records of the drawings in the archive, the McMichael and MICH aim to expand access to the collection to teachers, students, community members, and researchers, no matter where they live. Our common vision is to initiate a dialogue based on the archive as a foundation of Inuit traditional knowledge.
