Fantastique Kenojuak Ashevak
40 œuvres de la collection Claude Baud

Past: April 11 → September 6, 2013

The Canadian Cultural Centre presents, for the first time in France, a solo exhibition by one of the greatest Inuit artists, Kenojuak Ashevak — a key figure in the famous Inuit artists’ cooperative in Cape Dorset, located on the southwestern tip of Baffin Island, Nunavut. This fame is due to the distinctiveness of her art, whose fantastic dimension is not strictly linked to the shamanic world and to the bestiary of the local tradition but blossoms according to a more personal, admirably free aesthetic.

The exhibition Fantastic Kenojuak Ashevak brings together forty works from the private collection of Claude Baud, the French collector of Inuit art who contributed, with his gallery L’Iglou, Art Esquimau in Douai, to the promotion of the sculptures and prints of many artists by means of multiple exhibitions in France and Europe.

The exhibition Fantastic Kenojuak Ashevak is a tribute to the artist, who died on January 8, 2013, at the age of 85.
