Arctic Passage Artist Installation and Conversation
Award-winning photographer and documentary filmmaker Louie Palu will install a series of large format photographs frozen in large ice blocks. The blocks will melt over the course of the day, gradually revealing photographs Palu made in the high Arctic while on assignment for National Geographic. The project explores the evolving situation related to the geopolitics of the Polar region, the history of the Arctic, and climate change. Join us for a conversation with the artist at 4 p.m. about his experience photographing in the Arctic. Presented in partnership with SXSW.
