Six artists confront the beauty and destruction of the polar regions

PROVIDENCE, RI.- From March 31 to May 27, Brown University’s Bell Gallery presents 33°, a series of exhibitions and public artworks exploring ice melt and climate change. Bell Gallery director Jo-Ann Conklin notes that artists have participated in scientific and artistic explorations of the iconic landscapes of Earth’s polar regions since the late-nineteenth century. Today, the crisis of climate change and the associated threat of ice melt and sea level rise have drawn a legion of international artists to Greenland, the Arctic and Antarctic.

33° features the work of a group of international artists including sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard and photographers Olaf Otto Becker, Camille Seaman, James Balog, Jean de Pomereu, and Iain Brownlie Roy.

At the Bell Gallery, visitors can encounter Kirkegaard’s forty-minute soundspace “Isfald” (Icefall), a recording made at the Illulisat ice fjord in Greenland that will allow visitors to hear the variety of sounds produced by melting, cracking glaciers.

Alongside “Isfald” in the gallery are photographs of glaciers, icebergs, and the Greenland ice sheet by Becker and Seaman.

Photomurals by Becker, Seaman, Balog, de Pomereu, and Roy are being displayed on the exterior of buildings across Brown’s campus.

33° is mounted in conjunction with the Brown Arts Initiative’s theme of “Art and Environment,” and coincides with “WeatherProof: Arts, Humanities and Sciences Explore the Environment.” The series brings together the work of the David Winton Bell Gallery, the Brown Arts Initiative (BAI), the Cogut Institute for the Humanities, the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society(IBES) and the John Carter Brown Library (JCB). Each program will approach the issue of climate change differently, but two common threads that will span the series are water and the impact of environmental change on the polar regions.
