First Nations and Inuit art in the city

27/08/2019

 

The Montréal Museum of Fine Arts has a collection of Inuit art that occupies the entire fourth floor of the Claire and Marc Bougie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art. These works bear witness to the artistic practices of the Inuit people, defined by ancient customs and by transformations to their current way of life.

 

Another expression of this rich artistic tradition is presented in a collective mural produced by MU with the participation of five young Inuit, entitled Qanuqtuurniq (ingenious and innovative), at the corner of Dufresne Street and Ontario Street East.

 

Finally, sculptures by the Algonquin artist Nadia Myre will be installed in the fall of 2019 at the newly redesigned entrance to the Bonaventure Expressway. What a beautiful and exciting way to highlight and acknowledge the contributions that the First Nations and the Inuit people have made to our cultural life.
