Canadian Aboriginal Arts from the
Prince and Princess Takamado Collection

Thursday, April 23 - Wednesday, June 17
@@Embassy of Canada Prince Takamado Gallery, Tokyo

This exhibition features about 35 Canadian aboriginal artworks from the collection of Prince and Princess Takamado. The well known Inuit art collectors generously loaned a part of their collection to the Embassy of Canada in August 2002. In addition to the works loaned to the Embassy at that time, the exhibition includes other Inuit sculptures as well as a mask and a coat by Canadian First Nations. Viewers will encounter animals in a variety of styles and will get an idea of the world views of the aboriginal peoples of Canada.

Canadians Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller are internationally acclaimed visual artists. Representing Canada at the 49th Venice Biennale, they received a special prize for their work, Paradise Institute. This exhibition presents the sound installation The Forty Part Motet, with forty voices singing different parts, and the video and sound installation Night Canoeing. The latter work utilizes video and sound from a canoe trip at night along a dark river. The two works, despite their seemingly lifeless setups, quickly transport exhibition visitors to a world of emotion.
