Channel 51: Igloolik was an exhibition presented across Humber Galleries' two locations celebrating 30 years of industry-changing video production coming out of Igloolik, a remote community of 1600 people in Nunavut. The exhibit challenges stereotypes about ways of life in the North. Guest curated by Asinnajaq, Channel 51: Igloolik brings together a reading room and mediathèque with titles from Arnait Video Production and Isuma Video Collective dating back to 1988; and film paraphernalia, artwork, historical objects from Isuma's own collection, and the making of the internationally renowned film Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner.
An Education guide is a document compiled for each exhibit that includes information on the exhibit, curator, artist(s), art work and its meaning, topics, readings & articles, and resources.
These guides are helpful and are used by both faculty and students as they provide valuable information in a concise form.
NOTE: A large number of the further readings and the resources in each guide are sources gathered from Humber Library and can be found there.
