Isuma‘s participation in Canadian exhibition at Venice Art Biennale marks the first presentation of Inuit art in the national pavilion. The artistic collective, whose name means “to think, or a state of thoughtfulness” in Inuktitut, is Canada’s first Inuit video-based production company, born in 1990 to preserve Inuit culture and language and spread Inuit stories to different audiences around the world.
