Editorial Reviews

"The story of Avaalaaqiaq's life and her capacity to draw creative inspiration from it not only makes compelling reading, it makes an important contribution to the documentation of the history of the indigenous peoples of the Canadian arctic. Through a mix of art historical analysis, social/cultural background and, most importantly, the artist's own voice, this book convincingly demonstrates how personal biography and Inuit oral traditions have been used by Avaalaaqiaq to create a powerful and distinctive new art, where indeed myth and reality intersect." Marie Routledge, Associate Curator, Inuit Art, National Gallery of Canada "This is the first comprehensive biography of Irene Avaalaaqiaq. The historical context in which the material is presented is innovative and makes a fresh contribution to the subject." Sandra Barz, Arts and Culture of the North, New York City
