POLAR LAB, 2014 - 2015

Anchorage Museum’s Polar Lab is a reflection of the cultural, political, commercial, artistic and scientific attraction exerted by the international Arctic and subarctic. Polar Lab looks at the contemporary and future North through exhibitions and programs that connect art, science, and the environment and close the gap between North and  the rest  of the globe. With the support of Polar Lab, Nina has conducted four site visits within Alaska to examine mines and military infrastructure, their relevance to global economies, policies, and powers, and how the North is central to myths of the past and some of the most important dialogues about the future.
