ItuKiagâtta! Inuit Sculpture from the Collection of the TD Bank Financial Group
23 Mar 2005 - 05 Jun 2005
The National Gallery of Canada has teamed up with one of the country’s largest financial institutions to present an exhibition of exceptional art from Canada’s North. ItuKiagâtta! Inuit Sculpture from the Collection of the TD Bank Financial Group is on display at the Gallery from 23 March until 5 June 2005. ItuKiagâtta!, an expression that means “How it amazes us!” in the Labrador Inuktitut dialect, features 91 of the finest stone, bone and ivory sculptures from TD Bank Financial Group’s (TDBFG) Inuit Art Collection, representing an early, vital period in the development of Inuit art. After its opening in Ottawa, a smaller version of the show, featuring about 50 works, will tour other cities across Canada, including Winnipeg, Halifax, Edmonton, Victoria and Montreal.
