Inuit Modern Symposium

As Cathy noted earlier, we spent Saturday in Toronto to attend a symposium which marked the opening of the Inuit Modern exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The symposium was informative and powerful, focusing on the contemporary nature of Inuit life and art.  It was gratifying to see how the AGO and the symposium organizers forefronted Inuit concerns and made a point of letting Inuit artists speak for themselves.

The symposium was all day, but we managed to take a peek at the beautifully presented exhibition just before the museum closed for the day, and I sadly didn’t get any photographs, not that it would have been allowed anyway.
