EXHIBITION OVERVIEW

Celebrated for her use of bold colour, unique perspectives and a meticulous graphic style, Ningiukulu Teevee is an artist and writer from Kinngait, NU who has been creating since 2004.  Animals and birds figure prominently in her playful, often abstract, designs; they recount with wit and wonderment Inuit lore and contemporary life in the Arctic. Curated by Wanda Nanibush, AGO Curator, Indigenous Art, this exhibition features numerous loans from the collection of Erik Haites.


ABOUT THE ARTIST

Ningiukulu Teevee (1963−) is a Kinngait (Cape Dorset), NU-based graphic artist who has been contributing to the Cape Dorset annual print collection since 2004. Teevee’s playful style, that frequently depicts owls, walruses and seabirds (often wearing kamiit, rubber boots, or parkas), has become popular among collectors. Just two years following her debut in the collection, her inaugural solo exhibition, Ningiukulu Teevee: Drawings, was hosted at Feheley Fine Arts in Toronto in 2006. Her children’s book, Alego, was published in 2009, featuring her illustrations and text in English and Inuktitut.
