Our Land: Contemporary Art from the Arctic is the result of a collaboration between the Government of Nunavut (GN) and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. The title, “Our Land,” is the translation of the Inuktitut word "Nunavut". Called "stunning" by The Boston Globe, the exhibit was displayed at the Peabody Essex in 2004-2005 to honour the 1999 creation of Nunavut.
Our Land is one of the first opportunities in many years to view the outstanding selection of sculptures, prints, textiles, and new media from the Government of Nunavut Fine Art Collections.
