"SakKijâjuk: Art and Craft from Nunatsiavut" is the first major exhibition on the art of the Labrador Inuit. SakKijâjuk — meaning “to be visible” in the Nunatsiavut dialect of Inuktitut — provides an opportunity for visitors, collectors, art historians, and art aficionados from the South and the North to come into intimate contact with the distinctive, innovative and always breath-taking work of the contemporary Inuit artists and craftspeople of Nunatsiavut.
