Artists     Expedition      Exhibition     Archive      Info



The following presentations of the artists (clik the names below) for the upcoming iteration of PolArt are the results of a three-day workshop in Tromsø and the surrounding area in March 2018. We, as an investigating art community, gathered to establish common ground to work in a collective process approaching questions related to the Arctic region, occupying artists and marine biologists alike. We started thinking of, exploring and discussing the Arctic as a foundational site of our time, lending the concept of foundational site from W.J.T Mitchell in his book Image Science and the chapter Foundational sites and occupied spaces.
