Kablusiak, also known as Jade Nasogaluak Carpenter, is an emerging Inuvialuk artist and curator based in Calgary, AB. Born in Yellowknife, NT and raised in Edmonton, AB they use art and humour as a coping mechanism to subtly address diaspora, and to openly address mental illness; the lighthearted nature of their practice extends gestures of empathy and solidarity. Their work has been exhibited extensively throughout Alberta and Quebec and has been featured in the Summer 2017, Winter 2017 and Winter 2018 issues of the “Inuit Art Quarterly.” They are represented by Jarvis Hall Gallery in Calgary, AB.View Long Biography and Citations
