High Arctic Brings The Future To The National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum has finally opened the doors of its new Sammy Ofer Wing to the public and is offering visitors a peep 100 years into the future with High Arctic - an installation exploring a potential Northern landscape.

The installation, which sees the cross-disciplinary art and design collective, United Visual Artists, taking over the wing's new temporary exhibition space, takes inspiration from UVA artistic director Matt Clark's travels in the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard with arts and climate science foundation, Cape Farewell.
