Inuit Fantastic Art
The theme for this exhibition was inspired by a sculpture competition in Puvirnituq in 1967 and a subsequent exhibition in Winnipeg in 1972. The competition was organized to encourage the carvers to create works of originality and imagination, independent of the usual commercial production. Artists have continued to create these imaginative works over the years and the WAG has a significant number of these sculptures by a variety of different artists.
