Tour & Talk: SakKijâjuk

Saturday May 26 at 2pm

Tour & Talk: SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut with Curator and co-chair of the WAG's Indigenous Advisory Circle, Dr. Heather Igloliorte.

SakKijâjuk is the first major exhibition of the breathtaking and long-hidden art of the Labrador Inuit. SakKijâjuk - meaning "to be visible" in the Nunatsiavut dialect of Inuttitut - reveals the distinctive and innovative art of the region, produced over seven decades. See 85 works by four living generations of artists who share their stories through art.

Dr. Heather Igloliorte is an Assistant Professor of Aboriginal art history at Concordia University in Montreal. Her research interests centre on Inuit and other Native North American visual and material culture, circumpolar art studies, performance and media art, the global exhibition of Indigenous arts and culture, and issues of colonization, sovereignty, resistance, and resilience.

Illustrated Talk: The Painters called the Impressionists

Tuesday June 26 at 7pm

Join Dr. Stephen Borys, Director & CEO of the Winnipeg Art Gallery for an illustrated talk on the Painters called the Impressionists.

The WAG’s 2018 exhibition, French Moderns: Monet to Matisse, 1850-1950 brings to Winnipeg some of the finest works of Impressionism and Modernism in North America. Through their pioneering vision, the Impressionists sparked a revolution in modern art. In the end, they changed the way we view the world around us. This course is inspired by the exhibition, which features 75 paintings and sculptures, including works by many of the pioneers of their day, the painters called the Impressionists.
