The McClure Gallery is honoured to host Illirijavut, a tenth anniversary retrospective exhibition featuring thirty-two original storybooks from nineteen artists created during a series of Inuit Storytelling and Storybook-Making Workshops. During these workshops, we gather together as artists and invite an Elder to tell us their “true life stories.” Participants transform Inuit oral histories into original graphic storybooks narrated with Inuit syllabic texts on accordion-style paper.
