Abstract (English)

To accompany an exhibition of works by nine Inuit women sculptors and printmakers, texts by Freeman, Leroux and Jackson contextualize the artists, their work, and the exhibition. Individual "portfolios" on each artist provide a biographical career summary, and a text by the artist reflecting on her life. Includes three essays by "modern" Inuit women and a glossary of Inuit terms. Bibl. 3 p.
