Radio Juxtapoz and Inuk artist, Saimaiyu Akesuk in Special Live Recording @ Canada Goose, Miami
Radio Juxtapoz will be in Miami again this year, and this time, we are hosting a special panel discussion with Canada Goose and Inuk artist, Saimaiyu Akesuk, on Thursday, December 7th starting at 4PM to celebrate a special print release and the collaboration between the artist and the Toronto-based company.
Partnering with Akesuk and the West Baffin Cooperative, this is a chance to see the award-winning Canada Goose Art Collection come to life in a way it hasn’t done before. As an evolution of its longstanding program, Canada Goose has commissioned Saimaiyu to create three new works that will be sold exclusively at the Canada Goose Miami pop-up store released on December 7th. Proceeds from the sale of these works will benefit Inuit artists and communities across Canada..
At its Miami pop-up store during the live panel, there will be the works Saimaiyu Akesuk, an Iqaluit born, Kinngait-based artist who often works in drawing, with a specialty of drawing birds and bears and characterized for her distinctive use of shapes. Her art career began only a few years ago when she was encouraged by artist and friend and fellow Canada Goose collaborator, Ningiukulu Teevee, to experiment with making art.
