Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit, Art, Architecture and Traditional knowledge: The EVOQ exhibition continues its tour in Greenland

January 11, 2023

As part of an exchange between McGill University and Ilisimatusarfik University in Nuuk, the international travelling exhibition created by EVOQ Architecture, Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit, Art, Architecture and Traditional Knowledge was presented for the first time in Greenland in November 2022. The exhibition pays tribute to the Inuit artists whose work is integrated into the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS). The two spearheads of the expo, Isabelle Laurier, curator of the exhibition and Alain Fournier, architect and managing director, proudly represented EVOQ during a conference and for the long-anticipated vernissage.

This exhibition is of particular importance to the Greenlandic Inuit community as it demonstrates the way that can they take charge of the design of their built environment to reflects their own image.

EVOQ is proud to contribute to the improvement of the well-being of Inuit communities in the circumpolar world.
