Overview

Lavishly illustrated with over a hundred colour reproductions, Celebrating Inuit Art 1948-1970 is an impressive photographic tribute to an art form that was virtually unknown fifty years ago but which is now regularly featured in major art exhibitions worldwide. Born out of economic necessity, Inuit art has captured the imagination of art lovers since 1948, when it was first exhibited. Celebrating Inuit Art 1948-1970 showcases sculpture from the period when Canadian Inuit abandoned their nomadic lifestyle to settle in small villages across the Arctic. During this tumultuous time, in a society threatened with acculturation, art played a critical social role, preserving and expressing the culturès rich oral history. The works of art in this book are organized by geographic area, to illustrate the strong regional styles of this unique art form. In Nunavik, narrative is emphasized, whereas the works of Baffin artists stress the beauty of the richly textured local stone. In Keewatin, the sculptures look pre-historic yet modern, while the work of the Kitikmeot is distinguished by its shamanic whalebone carvings. Quotes, reminiscences and historic snapshots provide introductions to the individual Northern communities. the stunning photos, taken by Museum photographer Harry Foster, illustrate major pieces from the Canadian Museum of Civilization as well as treasures from James Housto&ngrave;s personal collection. This is a comprehensive, authoritative and breathtakingly beautiful survey of Inuit sculpture from a period of unequalled turmoil for the inhabitants of Canadàs Far North.
