Biography of Christine Lalonde

Christine Lalonde is a curator and art historian who has worked with Inuit artists since the mid-1990s and is currently the Associate Curator of Indigenous Art at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. Her many exhibition projects have advanced the understanding of Inuit art and represent a balance between theory and practice, between commemorating the artistic accomplishments of Inuit artists and raising awareness of critical issues. Her notable projects include Artists in the Arctic (2003), Inuit Sculpture Now (2005), and Uuturautiit: Cape Dorset Celebrates 50 Years of Printmaking (2009).

A regular contributor to Inuit Art Quarterly since 1995, Lalonde has also written extensively for journals, anthologies, and exhibition catalogues, such as Framing Our Past: Canadian Women’s History in the Twentieth Century (2001); On Aboriginal Representation in the Gallery (2002); and Inuit Modern: The Samuel and Esther Sarick Collection (2010).
