From the Author

Many people have been instrumental in the writing of this publication. I would like to thank Kiki and Ian Delaney, the Title Sponsors of this book. My gratitude as well to the anonymous donor who made the print edition of this publication possible. I acknowledge the professionalism of the entire team at the Art Canada Institute, especially Sara Angel, Jocelyn Anderson, Michael Rattray, Cy Strom, Simone Wharton, Stephanie Burdzy, and Emma Doubt, and thank them for the opportunity to share the pivotal work of Annie Pootoogook with a broader public. I thank York University’s Visual Art & Art History Department and my doctorate advisers Dr. Anna Hudson, Dr. Sarah Parsons, and Dr. Gerald McMaster, who are critical to this presentation. Special thanks to Patricia Feheley and Elyse Jacobson at Feheley Fine Arts for their knowledge, assistance, and encouragement. The people at Dorset Fine Arts have been an invaluable resource as well as my colleagues at the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative in Kinngait. I respect my many colleagues at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, and The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, who have offered me many opportunities to present the work of Inuit artists within their galleries. Most importantly I acknowledge, with joy and sadness, Annie Pootoogook, for her bravery and vision. Artists are the core, the reason, and the joy of all curatorial work.
