Canada is a Northern Nation. Canada's Arctic makes up over 40% of our landmass and is home to more than 100,000 Canadians. It is an essential part of our national identity and it is vital to our future. Come explore the history, art, landscape and contemporary issues affecting the people of the North. The story of the development of contemporary Inuit art and cultural expression from 1950 to the present. The focus will be on the visual arts and the explosion of Inuit film and performance. In the last 70 years Inuit life underwent a massive economic and social shift. The traditional Inuit migratory lifestyle was replaced by permanent residence in newly expanded settlements, a change that surprisingly led to even greater artistic expression.
