Inuit - A Selection of Works from the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec
From May 2 to October 13, 2008
This exhibition has ended.
This Inuit art exhibition showcases 110 sculptures, including 86 miniatures representing both the Inuit people's vision of the world and its sensitivity to contemporary realities. The works depict the symbolic as well as the daily lives of the Inuit through themes such as family, hunting and fishing, land and marine mammals, movement, legends and spirituality and bear witness to the creativity of a society whose being derives from its deep respect for nature.
The exhibition entitled Inuit. A Selection of Works from the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec is organized by the MNBAQ. It brings together 110 works from the Brousseau Inuit Art Collection, acquired by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in April 2005 through the exceptional financial support of Hydro-Québec and the generosity of Mr Raymond Brousseau.
