ᑕᑯᒃᓴᐅᔪᒻᒪᕆᒃ Double Vision: Jessie Oonark, Janet Kigusiuq, Victoria Mamnguqsualuk
ᑕᑯᒃᓴᐅᔪᒻᒪᕆᒃ Double Vision profiles three groundbreaking artists from Nunavut—Jessie Oonark (1906-1985) and her daughters, Janet Kigusiuq (1926-2005) and Victoria Mamnguqsualuk (1930-2016). It looks at the matriarchal practice of Oonark and her daughters, and how women artists in Qamani`tuaq mentored one another in producing unique aesthetic and conceptual lineages.
