Opening at the Joan Goldfarb Visual Arts Study Centre, Echoes presents the work of two contemporary Inuit artists – Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory in collaboration with Jamie Griffiths, and Taqralik Partridge.

The work involved relates to the idea of an echo, and to nipi – the Inuktitut word that best describes sound as it is understood as a translation into English. Echoes of Inuit traditional culture and history are strongly linked to the identity of Inuit today – as shown in the visuals by both of these artists.

The exhibition is curated by urban Inuk Jocelyn Piirainen, with the assistance of the Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage project along with the Art History Graduate Student Association of York University.
