As a multidisciplinary Inuvialuk artist and curator, Kablusiak seeks to demystify Inuit art and create space for diverse Inuit-led representation. Their artistic practice uses humor and Inuk ingenuity to engage materials such as lingerie, Sharpies, bed sheets, felt, acrylic paint, and words to invite empathy and solidarity to explore diasporic cultural displacement, family and community ties, and impacts of colonization on Inuit gender and sexuality expressions, health and wellbeing, and the everyday. Kablusiak’s recent and upcoming exhibitions include Qiniqtuaq, Bockley Gallery, Minneapolis (2023), Up Front, Onsite Gallery, OCAD, Toronto (2022), After Care, Mitchell Gallery, Alberta University of the Arts, Edmonton (2022), and Ublaak tikiyuak, artspeak, Vancouver, BC (2020). Along with Atautchikun | wâhkôtamowin, Remai Modern, Saskatchewan (2021-22), their recent co-curatorial work includes INUA, the inaugural exhibition of 90 artists working across Inuit Nanangot and beyond at Qaumajuq, the Inuit art center, Winnepeg Art Gallery (2021). Kablusiak is based in Mohkinstsis.
