James Houston and the History of Inuit Printmaking in Canada

Speaker: Dr. Nadine Fabbi

Cost: $10

Today, about 10% of Inuit make their living from art sales--one of the largest economies after mining. Yet how did this art form develop in a culture that exists above tree line where there is no wood or a culture of paper making, writing or etching? In this talk, University of Washington’s Dr. Nadine Fabbi, Managing Director of the Canadian Studies Center/Arctic and International Relations in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington and a Senior Arctic Fellow with the International Policy Institute in the Jackson School will provide an overview of the Inuit in Canada and the intriguing story of how printmaking by the Inuit has gained international recognition.
