The future of our planet depends, to a great extent, on the future of Antarctica. Yet the continent, which is known as the white desert, is largely neglected by the global community.
Curated by UNLESS, a non-profit agency devoted to interdisciplinary research on extreme environments threatened by the planetary crisis, Resolutions for the Antarctic: International Stations & the Antarctic Data Space is a multi-media exhibition showcasing the work of more than 200 scientists, architects and designers whose collective efforts to document, clarify and protect the uniqueness of the vast southern continent—a harbinger and a linchpin of our wider planet’s health—have global significance.
The exhibition will be the North American debut of work first displayed at the Venice Architecture Biennale and compiled in an award-winning book entitled Antarctic Resolution.
It will also see the launch of Resolutions for the Antarctic: International Stations & the Antarctic Data Space, a short film that tracks the evolution of Antarctica’s research stations, as well as the launch of the Antarctic Resolution Platform, an open-access site developed by UNLESS to enable the worldwide dissemination, downloading and translation of the multidisciplinary research conducted so far.
The Daniels Faculty’s Architecture and Design Gallery is located on the lower level of the Daniels Building at 1 Spadina Crescent, just off the main (eastern) entrance. The Gallery is free and open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday, closed on weekends. Click here for more information on the space.
