About

2010 Arctic Expedition
9 September to 1 October 2010

On 9 September 2010, Cape Farewell begins its 9th Art & Science expedition to the Arctic. For 22 days the crew of 20 voyagers will sail around Svalbard and Spitsbergen on the Noorderlicht.

5 marine scientists and 10 artists from around the world – writers, musicians, visual artists, directors and architects – will sail from Longyearbyen around the north-east coast of Spitsbergen in the Norwegian arctic to encounter the magnificence of this extreme and threatened environment and engage with the scientific research being conducted on board.

Crew members include Paul Miller AKA DJ Spooky (musician, DJ & writer, USA), Deborah Warner (theatre & opera director, UK), Nick Drake (poet, novelist & playwright, UK) Matthew Clark (digital artist/ Creative Director of UVA, UK), Ruth Little (dramaturg & writer, UK), Mikhail Durnenkov (playwright, Russia), Cynthia Hopkins (performance & music artist, USA), Leonid Tishkov (visual artist, Russia), Iris Haeussler (visual artist, Canada), Marina Moskvina (novelist, Russia), Beth Kapusta (writer & architecture critic, Canada), Daria Parkhomenko (Director of Laboratoria Art & Science Space, Russia), Kevin Buckland (Arts Ambassador/ 350.org, Spain), Bob Davies (architect, Canada), David Buckland (artist, Cape Farewell expedition leader) and others.

Their journey to the Arctic is broadcast on this expedition blog.
Daily posts by the crew members are sent back to the Cape Farewell website, which will display regular blogs, images and video reports from the expedition.


Onwards

One of the expedition’s crew members, Matt Clark, artistic director of United Visual Artists (UVA), will create new material in response to the expedition which will be developed by the UVA team towards a new large scale commission for the National Maritime Museum (NMM). UVA is working with both the NMM’s and Cape Farewell’s extensive archives and experience to develop an immersive and interactive installation for the NMM’s forthcoming Special Exhibitions Gallery. The exhibition, titled High Arctic, will launch in summer 2011 as the first temporary show in the Museum’s new Sammy Ofer Wing.
