Marion Tuu'luq

11 Oct 2002 - 12 Jan 2002

The NGC is pleased to honour this remarkable artist's vision of the world, at once modest and sublime, presented in the exhibition Marion Tuu'luq from 11 October 2002 to 12 January 2003. Marion Tuu'luq brings together 37 fascinating works on cloth. Their vivid colours, delicate embroidery and lively appliqués are a perfect illustration of Tuu'luq's experience of life in the Canadian Arctic, before and after the massive social, economic and political changes that took place there throughout much of the 20th century. Her art is a reflection on the significance of the land and the family in Inuit life, the joys and hardships of nature and the realities of change.
