March 27 - May 20, 2007
Our Land is the first major museum exhibition of contemporary art from Canada's newest territory, Nunavut. On loan from the Peabody Essex Museum and the Government of Nunavut, this exhibition features about sixty works from the important Nunavut Territorial collection of contemporary Inuit art, which celebrates the growth of Inuit creative expression over the past five decades. The exhibition is presented by the Hood in recognition of International Polar Year 2007-8 and in conjunction with the exhibition Thin Ice: Inuit Traditions within a Changing Environment.
The presentation of Our Land at the Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, was generously funded by the Philip Fowler 1927 Memorial Fund and the William Chase Grant 1919 Memorial Fund.
