Arctic Echoes: Sound, Stories and Song in the New North
February 19 – August 2017
Curator: Dr. Nancy Campbell
Galleries 2, 3 and 4

To [Inuit], truth is given through oral tradition, mysticism, intuition, all cognition, not simply by observation and measurement of physical phenomena. To them, the ocularly visible apparition is not nearly as common as the purely auditory one; hearer would be a better term than seer for their holy men. ‐‐ Edmund Carpenter and Marshall McLuhan, Acoustic Space

Music, storytelling, poetry and dance are essential expressions of Inuit cultural identity. This series of Inuit art exhibitions is themed to sounds and activities associated with sound as manifested in the Arctic environment, Inuit songs, instrumental performances and other aural/oral sources represented in Inuit visual art. This selection of contemporary Inuit art showcases the importance of sound with respect to its cultural significance as a core area of perception. This exhibition will also include some works on paper by Inuit women artists selected from the recent Museum of Inuit Art acquisition. Audio/visual components that complement the works on display are also included in the curatorial research process for this project.
