Interest in the Arctic has preoccupied explorers for hundreds of years, and that fascination with the North continues today. “View From Up Here: The Arctic at the Center of the World” is an international contemporary art exhibition that highlights contemporary investigations into the Arctic – through the perspective of artists. The exhibition conveys a complexity of place and people through film, photographs, installations, and sculptures that highlight Arctic cultures, landscape, scientific research, and visions of the future. Participating artists include: Nicholas Galanin (Alaska), Anna Hoover (Alaska/Washington), Jeroen Toirkens (Holland), Derek Cote (Michigan), Marek Ranis (North Carolina), Christoph Kapeller (California), Paul Walde (Canada), John Grade (Washington), Magali Daniaux and Cedric Pigot (France), Mary Mattingly (New York), Annesofie Norn (Denmark), Bryndis Snaebjornsdottir and Mark Wilson (Iceland/England). The exhibition will have components throughout the museum, from formal galleries to an atrium "living room" and installations in common spaces and outdoors. It is accompanied by public programs, including performances and temporary installations in the museum and out in the community. A corresponding publication looks at the North beyond black-and-white perspectives.
