The exhibition ᑕᑯᒃᓴᐅᔪᒻᒪᕆᒃ Double Vision is centred on the Inuit textile works of Jessie Oonark (1906-1985) and two of her daughters, Janet Kigusiuq and Victoria Mamnguqsualuk.

Despite only beginning her practice once moving to Qamani’tuaq (Baker Laker, Nunavut) at age 59, Oonark became one of the most influential Inuit textile makers. Her family’s distinctly matriarchal practice centers on the dynamics and interrelationships between people, animals, and the spiritual world. Visitors to the Central Gallery are greeted by the bright colours of nivinngajuliaat (wall hangings) and a complementary exhibition from the Gallery’s collection, Sleeping in Skins: Life in Inuit Nunangat, which features a selection of prints and one beaded front-piece by Inuit artists.
