Legacies 150 / Générations 150 featuring Bonnie Ammaaq

July 21 – 23, 2017

Visual Arts

The Legacies 150 / Générations 150 exhibition is a co-presentation with the National Film Board of Canada that highlights 13 stories exploring legacy and inheritance a century and a half into Canadian Confederation. These interactive photo essays are the result of collaborations between photographers, writers, poets, illustrators, and musicians from coast to coast to coast.

As part of Northern Passages, we highlight Inuit director, producer, and writer Bonnie Ammaaq, who, as a child, moved with her family from the government-manufactured community of Igloolik, Nunavut, to the vast interior of Baffin Island. For 11 years they lived like many past generations of Inuit, and now look back on a way of life lost not only to them, but also to the entire world. Ammaaq’s work with the National Film Board and other projects have been featured at festivals across Canada and internationally.

Legacies 150 / Générations 150 is presented as part of our Visual Arts Exhibitions Summer 2017, on view until September 17, 2017.
