Some 50 years ago, the remote Inuit community of Cape Dorset in the Canadian Arctic was introduced to the ancient traditions of Japanese printmaking by a Canadian artist, James Houston, who had studied printmaking in Japan with the revered master printmaker Un’ichi Hiratsuka. The remarkable story of that artistic encounter and its extraordinary results are the focus of this groundbreaking exhibition catalogue. Includes essay by Asato Ikeda and Ming Tiampo, and contributions from Kananginak Pootoogook.
