Seeing Glacial Time: Climate Change in the Arctic

January 30 – May 18, 2014
Tisch Family Gallery

Seeing Glacial Time examines how eight contemporary artists employ the "real time" of photography to visualize the largely imperceptible, gradual changes in "glacial time" from the bellwether Arctic region. Most of these artists have gone to extreme lengths—and distances—to capture and create their imagery. Some utilize scientific and appropriated photography as source material, while others depart from documentary traditions to create expressive images suggestive of a melancholic Sublime. This timely exhibition of paintings, photographs and a video installation introduces Boston audiences to artists who either have not been seen before in the area or have created new work for this occasion.

This exhibition is organized by the Tufts University Art Gallery and curated by Dr. Amy Ingrid Schlegel, director of galleries and collections.
