TITLE: True North: Contemporary Art of the Circumpolar North

BRIEF ABOUT: “True North offers a compelling narrative for the increased relevancy of the North, particularly Northerners’ unique perspective on man’s evolving relationship with the environment, said Anchorage Museum Chief Curator Julie Decker.”These artists are attempting to define place, not the romantic North of earlier generations, but the next North, one that is connected, pivotal and conflicted.”

      The exhibition features nearly 80 photographs, films and multi-media installations by 39 artists from Iceland, Scandinavia, Canada and the United States, including many Alaskans all listed at: www.anchoragemuseum.org/galleries/true_north/artists.aspx.
