Ten visual artists, one musician and three writers undertook residencies in the Antarctic between 2001 and 2009, under the auspices of the British Antarctic Survey, supported by Arts Council England. This exhibition will bring together art resulting from the various artistic investigations, offering an opportunity to reflect upon the very different subject matter, media and responses evident in the range of work produced.

 David Wheeler, one of the ten artists and Artistic Director of IOU, will be showing work from Half Moon.

Curator: Liz Wells, Professor in Photographic Culture, Plymouth University.(First shown at Peninsula Arts Gallery, Plymouth University, 2012)
