New ShawTV video – Art Gallery of Algoma Exhibition

The Art Gallery of Algoma (AGA)’s 2013 exceptional summer exhibition, Arctic Journeys Ancient Memories, will be the first major Canadian exhibition of works by the internationally recognized Inuit artist since his solo show last year at the Smithsonian Institution’s American Indian Museum in Washington, D.C. In what promises to be a truly unique exhibition, visitors to the Art Gallery of Algoma will have the opportunity to discover Abraham Anghik Ruben’s exceptional sculptures, in an intimate setting.  Ruben invites viewers to explore his historical narrative on the cultural, social and spiritual life of two Arctic peoples: the Inuvialuit (Inuit) and the Norse. Opening on June 6, 2013, the exhibition is organized by The Arctic Studies Center, National Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution in association with the Kipling Gallery and will run until September 8th, 2013.
