Résumé : 

A broad-ranging retrospective on the transformation of Inuit art in the twentieth century, Inuit Modern features more than 175 works by seventy-five Inuit artists from one of the world's most comprehensive privately held collections of Inuit art: the Samuel and Esther Sarick Collection.

In response to new thinking about the North, Inuit Modern
Five leading experts on Inuit art have contributed essays and Ingo Hessel, the co-curator, introduces each full-colour plate section, providing a lively and insightful context for the artwork.

The Inuit voice is a critical component of Inuit Modern, complementing the scholarly essays. In their interviews, artists Zacharias Kunuk and David Ruben Piqtoukun offer the perspective of Inuit in the twenty-first century. Poems by the beloved writer Alootook Ipellie and quotes from Inuit artists appear throughout the book.
