Experience the High Arctic at the National Maritime Museum
14 July 2011 – 8 January 2012

Based on UVA Creative Director Matt Clark's experience of our 2010 Art & Science Expedition to Svalbard, United Visual Artists bring their installation High Arctic to the brand new Sammy Ofer wing of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich.

Conceived as a response to the expedition, High Arctic uses a combination of sound, light and sculptural forms to create an abstracted Arctic landscape for visitors to explore. Created as a monument to the Arctic past, set 100 years into the future, the installation conveys the scale, beauty and fragility of the Arctic and invites us to reflect on our own relationship with the environment.

Find out more about the exhibition on the National Maritime Museum website and sneak a glance at it through this video. Or click for details of the competition we're running for young creatives alongside the exhibition.
