Join Inuit artists and thinkers to reflect on this statement during a timely one-day online conference. This series of three online events — taking place on Friday, April 1, 2011 live from the Art Gallery of Ontario — is scheduled in conjunction with the opening of Inuit Modern: The Esther and Samuel Sarick Collection of Inuit Art. It will explore the questions: What are the current issues affecting Inuit art today and how has modernity complicated life in Canada’s far North? How has Inuit art changed the way that Canada and Inuit are viewed internationally?
