Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15
1100 Chestnut Street
From the Museum of Vancouver (MOV) comes the Vancouver premiere Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15 commemorating the establishment of Canada’s newest territory. This investigation into the architectural history of Nunavut is on display October 8 – December 13, 2015. Visitors will delve into the realities of contemporary life in this sublime yet fragile region, exploring philosophies of adaptation, ingenuity, and the intersection of technology and tradition. Concepts will be illuminated through soapstone carvings of significant architectural works, topographic models and photographs of Nunavut’s 25 communities, and replicas of structures enhanced by animations which suggest innovative solutions in the delivery of housing, health, arts, education, and recreation. Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15 is organized and curated by Lateral Office; the exhibition tour is presented and coordinated by the Winnipeg Art Gallery.
