The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Loosely translated, the Inuktitut word Akunnittinni means “between us.” This exhibition chronicles a visual dialogue between an Inuk grandmother, mother, and daughter – Pitseolak Ashoona, Napachie Pootoogook, and Annie Pootoogook. Their work provide a personal and cultural history of three generations of Inuit women and sardonic references to pop culture that now infuses everyday life in Kinngait (Cape Dorset), as well as nuanced depictions of family and village life.

This exhibition will be at the Center for Contemporary Native Art (CCNA) at Portland Art Museum June 22, 2019-Jan. 5, 2020.
