Channel 51: Igloolik brings together a broad selection of titles from and inspired by Arnait Video Production and Isuma Video Collective dating back to 1988. After 30 years of industry-changing video production in Igloolik, Nunavut, these ground-breaking video collectives are still going strong. Arnait and Isuma have contributed a vast body of work to contemporary Inuit visual culture and this pair of exhibitions present an opportunity to see what has been accomplished over three decades.
