Necessary Adaptations: Dialogue through Contemporary Art

Organized by the Anchorage Museum, Museum Cerny Inuit Collection and Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association 11. September 2017

Ongoing changes in the Arctic––climatic, social and economic––are often mirrored in the contemporary art of artists who have a close connection with these challenges. This session is aimed at continuing the dialogue about how contemporary art (in all its forms) can create awareness and understanding about the impact and necessary adaptations that involve us all.
