December 8 – January 12, MARION SCOTT GALLERY presents Modern Masters: Early Inuit Sculptures from Northern Quebec

Posted on 27th November 2018

The Marion Scott Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of early sculptures from Northern Quebec, also known as Nunavik, generally considered to be the birthplace of modern Inuit art. Opening December 8 and continuing through January 12, Modern Masters: Early Inuit Sculptures from Northern Quebec will include works in stone and ivory produced during the late 1940s and early 1950s in communities and camps situated along the east coast of the Hudson Bay. The exhibition will feature a number of rare sculptures by Akeeaktashuk, one of the era’s best-known artists, including what may be his finest image of a mother and child. Also featured are a number of unattributed images by sculptors whose identities may never be known to us. The exhibition will comprise images of people and the various animals that inhabit the Arctic along with the Inuit.
