Annie Pootoogook is an up and coming Inuit artist who comes from a multi-generational family of artists. In 2006, she won the Sobey Art Award and is currently one of the featured artists at the influential Documenta 12, in Kassel, Germany.

Her works are an honest presentation of a culture in transition portraying modern Inuit life with a detachment that brings a freshness to her work which ranges from the sublime to the horrifying.
