Kablusiak is an Inuvialuk artist and curator based in Mohkinstsis (Calgary), and a board member of Stride Gallery (Mohkinstsis). Awards include the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Young Artist Prize and the Primary Colours Emerging Artist Award.

Kablusiak has recently exhibited work at Art Mûr (Montreal) as part of the Biennale d’art contemporain autochtone, and at the Athens School of Fine Arts in Greece, as part of the Platforms Project. In addition, Kablusiak and three other Inuit curators will be creating the inaugural exhibition of the new Inuit Art Centre in 2020.

Kablusiak uses art and humour to address cultural displacement. The lighthearted nature of the artist’s practice extends gestures of empathy and solidarity; these interests invite reconsideration of the perceptions of contemporary indigeneity.
