Art in Antarctica

About me

Location McMurdo Station, South Pole, United States
Introduction The Miami artist will be creating a series of art projects and installations: Cortada will be planting flags --and a mangrove seedling replica-- on a moving glacier to mark the passage of time; creating a collaborative mural with scientists who work there; painting a portrait of Sir Ernest Shackleton for the South Pole (permanently placing the famed explorer in a place that eluded him in life); placing flags with images of endangered animals from across the globe around the South Pole. Cortada will also be creating installations on the South Pole expressing the voices and thoughts on environmental concerns from people living in the world above.
