Kenojuak Ashevak: Life and Legacy

January 12, 2024April 24, 2024

The Beaverbrook Art Gallery is pleased to present the national touring exhibition Kenojuak Ashevak: Life and Legacy. With a career spanning more than five decades, Cape Dorset artist Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013) was part of a pioneering generation of Arctic creators. She enjoyed an illustrious international career and continues to be recognized as one of Canada's preeminent artists and cultural icons. The exhibition presents never-before-seen drawings, from the archives of the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, that inspired some of Kenojuak's most emblematic prints in stonecut, lithography and etching.

Organized by Dorset Fine Arts.
