Playing Favourites is a running series featuring MIA visitors, staff and volunteers with their favorite objects in our collection.  Playing Favourites is open to every person at MIA, so please let us know if you’d like to participate the next time you visit.

MIA visitor Farsi H. with "Amouti" (2009) by Irene Avaalaaqiaq (1941 - ), Qamani'tuaq (Baker Lake), fabric, thread, glass beads, Sprott/MIA Collection

Where are you from?

Courbevoie (France)

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

In Montreal I heard about it.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

Because of the color and the bead-work.  It is unique and unlike anything else I’ve seen.
