The Art Gallery of Burlington is proud to present this exhibition from a local Private Collection. Moving beyond the perceived notion of ‘Inuit art’ as just soapstone carvings, the exhibition highlights ceramics as a strong component of northern artistic practices. Ceramic production in the North is unique with its collaborative approach to creating works. It is common for multiple artists to contribute to the design and production of a single piece. The resulting work representing narratives of community, tradition and spirituality.
