subsist brings together a selection of works that reflect political, economic, and social systems of subsistence in cultural practices for survival.

The exhibition explores the controversy of the seal hunt, western globalization policies, and the impacts of colonialism on land and health determinants for Indigenous peoples in Canada. Maureen Gruben’s new work, Breathing Hole, is in dialogue with photography, drawings, sculpture, and installation. See work by KC Adams, Dana Claxton, Mark Igloliorte, Omalluq Oshutsiaq, and Andrew Qappik in tandem with a selection of pieces from the WAG’s extensive Inuit art collection, featuring Qaunaq Mikkigak, Akitiq Sanguya, Luke Anguhadluq, Napachee Kadlak, Bobby Etoktok, Kananginak Pootoogook, and various unidentified artists.
