Stories and Legends: Mythology and Shamanism

Relatively unknown in Europe, but prized by North American collectors, Inuit printing has a strong identity much like Japanese and German Expressionist prints. 

The exposition, designed like a voyage offers a reading of Inuit stories and legends illustrated by over a hundred works chosen through the work of a variety of Canadian printing workshops such as Cape Dorset, Pangnirtung, Baker Lake, Holman, etc. 

The exposition includes both educational and playful aspects, including a space dedicated to the tools, stones, leathers and presses that allow for the production of these works of art. Activities, workshops and theater will allow participants to discover an original culture rich with wisdom.
