Join Arts Council award-winning artist Zsuzsanna Ardó and UCL Polar scientist Rachel Tilling to explore together the changing face of the Arctic, and the different ways of working there as an artist and a scientist. On separate expeditions they worked in the Arctic using the ingenuity, tools and methods of their field. Their UCL Art Museum event invites you to a brief scientific overview of the Arctic, followed by a pop up art session and an polar self-portrait art workshop. Some of the pieces produced in the workshop will be considered for inclusion in their collaborative exhibition at UCL in November-December. More information about the project on Ateliér Ardó.
