November 11, 2006–February 4, 2007
New York, NY
"ItuKiagâtta!," a Labrador Inuktitiut phrase meaning "how it amazes us," presents many works created by Inuit artists from the 1950s and 1960s—a period of great upheaval for Canada's indigenous Arctic communities. TD Bank Financial Group, which marked its 150th anniversary in 2005, began assembling its Inuit art collection to mark Canada's centennial in 1967. The original collection contained sculptures, prints, drawings and ceramics, by artists from across the Canadian Arctic, with an emphasis on the period between World War II and 1967. The collection now includes 610 works.
