“Now on view at Scandinavia House, On the Arctic Edge — Artists Explore the Far North presents three contemporary photo-based artists whose work traverses the regions of the Arctic Circle to probe themes ranging from time and memory, to landscape and the built environment, to science and mythology, to our changing climate: Marion Belanger, Clare Benson, and Steve Giovinco.
The exhibition will be accompanied by two upcoming programs: an Artist Panel on Saturday, February 4 at 1:30 PM with artists Marion Belanger, Clare Benson, and Steve Giovinco in conversation with photographer Erika Larsen. The discussion will examine the individual experiences and work of each artist, as well as the broader perspective the exhibition brings as a collective reflection on the rapidly changing landscape of the Arctic region. On Thursday, February 16 at 7 PM at Scandinavia House, author Lisa E. Bloom will discuss her new book Climate Change and the New Polar Aesthetics: Artists Reimagine the Arctic and Antarctica, exploring how artists, filmmakers, and activists engaged with the Arctic and Antarctic represent our current environmental crises and reconstruct public understandings of them, including Katja Aglert, Subhankar Banerjee, Judit Hersko, Roni Horn, Isaac Julien, Zacharias Kunuk, and others.” — Scandinavia House
