New Voices from the New North
26 Apr 2013 - 28 Feb 2014
Inuit Art Galleries
The Inuit Gallery is temporarily closed. Due to construction work taking place above the Gallery, the artworks are being removed and protected as a preventative measure. The Gallery is anticipated to reopen soon. Please check back for updates.
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.
