In Conversation: Curator Nancy Campbell on Shuvinai Ashoona


Curator Talk

Curator Nancy Campbell gives us an introduction to Shuvinai Ashoona’s life and work, and takes some time to look closely at a few of our favourite drawings in the Mapping Worlds exhibition.

Artist Shuvinai Ashoona lives in Kinngait on the southern tip of Baffin Island, and her drawings imagine the past and present fused into a prophetic future, populated by human-animal hybrid creatures, women birthing worlds, and mystical or other-worldly landscapes clearly inspired by the terrain of her northern home.
