The Shadow Land
We have launched a new, immersive digital walkthrough of the The Shadow Land: Cape Dorset Prints from the Bacardi Collection. This unique, 360 degree experience is generously supported by the Canadian Consul.
The exhibition presents artworks produced by the first generation of full time Inuit artists based at Cape Dorset. The settlement, which is situated in Canada’s Arctic Territories, is considered to the epicentre of contemporary Inuit art. The works, which were collected by Bacardi’s Canadian office in the 1970s, include prints by Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013) and Pitseolak Ashoona (1904-1983), two of Canada’s most esteemed artists.
We recently welcomed the Honorary Consul of Canada in Bermuda, Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone, to the gallery (pictured above with BNG Executive Director Peter Lapsley. She said: “Canada’s cultural contributions are a big part of who we are as a people and what we value as a country. The Cape Dorset exhibition beautifully highlights our diversity of voices and we’re happy to see this art shared at the Bermuda National Gallery.”

The Shadow Land: Cape Dorset Prints from the Bacardi Collection is on display through to the end of the year.
