ABOUT

An initiative by the Inuit Art Foundation, the Inuit Artist Database highlights the contributions of historical and contemporary Inuit artists to the cultural and artistic heritage of their communities, Canada and the world through a centralized online resource. An extension of the Inuit Art Quarterly, the world's only magazine dedicated to Inuit and circumpolar art, the IAD biographies are published by the Inuit Art Foundation with a network of scholars and experts in the field, with permissions by artists and their communities.

The database highlights the contributions of historical and contemporary Inuit artists to the cultural and artistic heritage of their communities, Canada and the world through a centralized online resource. A key goal of the database is to broaden public awareness of the history of Inuit art and to connect interested researchers with artists and artworks while providing artists a supportive platform through which to showcase their CVs. This includes artwork, artist statements, past and upcoming exhibitions, resources for further research and more. All public contributions to the database are credited to keep a record of information, and provide possible options for further research.
