Book Launch: 50 Years of Printmaking at Cape Dorset

by admin ~ October 16th, 2007

Kinngait Studios (the graphics program of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative) is a printmaking co-operative that has provided 50 years of support to independent community artists in the North, and was influential in reshaping community development approaches in Nunavut and beyond. “Cape Dorset Prints: A Retrospective” examines the 50 year history of this dynamic Inuit institution in over 200 color prints, and thirteen essays by artists, historians, and Co-op founders. The release of the book by Pomegranate Press is set to coincide with the annual 2007 Cape Dorset Print Collection, and exhibits in Toronto and the Nunatta Sunakkutaangit Museum in Iqualiut.
