    With the assistance of independent curator Heather Campbell, the National Gallery of Canada presents outstanding artworks by Inuit artists from its collection. Ranging from sculpture to works on paper to video, the artworks are paired with commentary by diverse voices of Inuit artists, elders, youth, and other cultural and political leaders, bringing to the fore multiple perspectives on history, changes to Inuit societies, and present-day life in the new North.

    Various artists from the Canadian Arctic regions are included: Davidialuk Alasua Amittu, Luke Anguhadluq, Tony Anguhalluq, Kenojuak Ashevak, Karoo Ashevak, Kiugak Ashoona, Shuvinai Ashoona, Igloolik Isuma Productions, Elisapee Ishulutaq, Mattiusi Iyaituk, Helen Kalvak, Qavavau Manumie, Michael Massie, William Noah, Jessie Oonark, Jacoposie Oopakak, Kananginak Pootoogook, Itee Pootoogook, Pudlo Pudlat, David Ruben Piqtoukun, Nick Sikkuark and Ningeokuluk Teevee.

    Paul-Émile Miot: Early Photographs of Newfoundland
    Gallery A102a
    Library and Archives Canada
    In partnership with the National Gallery of Canada
     
    In 1857 Paul-Émile Miot, a French naval officer aboard the Ardent, captained by Georges-Charles Cloué, made photographs of the waters and land around Newfoundland and Labrador. Important both for their practical information and as political tools, Miot’s images also provide evocative glimpses of Newfoundland’s past.
