Hot Art: Inuit Art and National Identity

Just one of the pieces on view for "Truly Canadian." Photo credit: Kenojuak Ashevak, The Owl (1969) Carleton University Art Gallery: The Priscilla Tyler and Maree Brooks Collection of Inuit Art.

Canadians have a reputation for searching for a national identity. Curator Michelle Bauldic sees Inuit art as a Canadian symbol, something that is uniquely “ours.” That’s why she’s put together Truly Canadian: Inuit Art and National Identity at the Carleton University Art Gallery, which explores how and why Inuit is perhaps one of the only aspects of Canadian culture that truly defines us. Check it out until Jan. 29.
