Celebrating Inuit ArtBook - 2006
Lavishly illustrated with over a hundred color reproductions, this new paperback edition is an impressive photographic tribute to an art form that is regularly featured in major art exhibitions worldwide. Born out of economic necessity, Inuit art has captured the imagination of art lovers since 1948, when it was first exhibited. Celebrating Inuit Art showcases sculpture from the period when Canadian Inuit abandoned their nomadic lifestyle to settle in small villages across the Arctic. During this tumultuous time, in a society threatened with acculturation, art played a critical social role, preserving and expressing the culture's rich oral history."
