Walking Both Sides of an Invisible Border is a touring exhibition honouring the work of Inuit artist and writer Alootook Ipellie.
He was born at Nuvuqquq on Baffin Island and grew up in Iqaluit before moving to Ottawa as a young man.
He started working as a translator, illustrator and reporter for Inuit Monthly (renamed Inuit Today) in the early 1970s, and later was its editor. Through his widely read poems, articles and essays, Ipellie gave voice to important cultural, political and social issues affecting Inuit Nunangat, with humour and immense patience.
