Food for Thought: North by Nuuk: Greenland After Rockwell Kent—Photographs by Denis Defibaugh


Join artist and professor Denis Defibaugh for a special lunch and a tour through his special exhibition, North by Nuuk: Greenland After Rockwell Kent—Photographs by Denis Defibaugh.

In North by Nuuk, photographer Denis Defibaugh presents his journey from Nuuk to the settlement of Illorsuit, 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle, following Rockwell Kent’s earlier footsteps and offers a fresh look at timeless Greenland. Defibaugh’s revealing documentary photographs, made during 2016–17, introduce a changing country and its cultural continuity in response to Kent’s 1930s historic writings and images made during his residence in Greenland. Gallery text and video include native language speakers as well as Kent’s lantern slides.

The exhibition is supplemented with etchings and prints from Rockwell Kent’s Greenland sojourn, on loan from the University of Plattsburgh, and artwork from the Thaw Collection of American Indian Art.
