Until September 8, 2018
In the midst of the summer heat, Earls Court Gallery is honoured to present Cold Front V. This exhibition displays the masterful sculptures, textiles and prints created by Inuit Artists from Canada’s North.
Inuit Art is commonly attributed to Inukshuks and Dancing Bears; imagery that holds deep meaning and importance in Inuit culture. Through this genre of artwork, stories and connections between the natural and spiritual world are depicted, giving viewers an opportunity to learn about Inuit traditions. Cold Front V celebrates contemporary culture in northern Canada by contrasting traditional subject matter with current ways of life in the Arctic. This contrast is evident through modern motifs such as a skeleton sledder or snowmobile captured in traditional soapstone. While content may change, technique and material remain the same, staying true to artistic tradition.
This exhibition showcases artists from the following communities: Arviat, Baker Lake, Cape Dorset, Coral Harbour, Iqaluit, Kimmirut, Pangnirtung, Pond Inlet, Rankin Inlet and Sanikiluag. The exhibition also brings together historical prints from as early as the 1960s forward.
