Exhibition Entitled Intuit Art from the Canadian Arctic Opens in New Delhi

INVC,, Delhi,, The Secretary Culture Shri Jawhar Sircar inaugurated an international exhibition on ‘Intuit Art’ from the Canadian Arctic in New Delhi today. Acting High Commissioner of Canada in India Shri Jim Nickel was also present on the occasion. The National Museum of New Delhi, the National Museum Institute and the National Gallery of Canada have jointly organized the exhibition. The exhibition is the first major venture under the India-Canada MOU on Cultural Cooperation that was signed during Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh’s visit to Canada in June 2010, and was mentioned in the Joint Statement by the Prime Ministers of India and Canada. Speaking on the occasion, Shri Jawhar Sircar and Shri Jim Nickel expressed the hope that visitors from around the world during the Commonwealth Games 2010 will see a glimpse of ‘Intuit Art’ through this exhibition. Inuit Nunangat-the Inuit homeland in Canada- is a glorious expanse of taiga and tundra, polar ice and permafrost that has been inhabited by Inuit and ancestral peoples for more than 4000 years. Since the mid-twentieth century, Inuit artists have established a powerful art movement that tells a compelling story of artistic invention and cultural continuity. Featuring masterworks from the collection of the National Gallery of Canada, the exhibition Sanaugavut, meaning “our works of art” in Inuktitut, focuses on the emergence of this most recent stage of creative expression and features sculptures, prints, drawings, textile art, and video that highlight the significant themes of Inuit art- traditional social life and customs, spiritual beliefs and mythology, historical moments and personal experiences- in a richly diverse range of artistic media and styles. The exhibition will be opened to public from 28th September 2010 at the National Museum, Janpath, New Delhi.
