Austria hosts Inuit art exhibition
The Macdonald Stewart Art Centre at the University of Guelph has organized the first exhibition of Canadian Inuit art to be shown in Austria.
This exhibition consists of wall hangings and drawings from the centre’s large Inuit art collection.
Entitled Asingit, meaning “different ones,” it features work by 14 artists from Baker Lake and Cape Dorset. The theme of Asingit suggests transformation, that is, the possibility of every animate and inanimate object to exist in both the spirit and physical world.
