Yua: Henri Matisse and the Inner Arctic Spirit will explore the surprising and little-known story of how Inuit people and culture inspired one of the 20th century’s most influential artists, Henri Matisse. Included in the exhibition will be works by Matisse that have not been publicly shown in the United States, and will reunite dozens of stunning Yup’ik (Native Alaskan) mask sets that have been separated for more than a century.

Yua: Henri Matisse and the Inner Arctic Spirit will feature original artwork by Henri Matisse, Yup’ik masks, cultural objects, photographs, film, and ephemera, and will explore the shared creative impulses that transcend time and culture by examining the unexpected connection between the Great Master and the people of the Arctic.
