Anchorage Museum | Polar Lab

Non-member

Polar Lab invites artists to engage the North through short and long-term projects and non-traditional residencies.

Polar Lab places artists inside the Museum and inside the North to present insider views of relevant issues impacting northern people and places. Some residencies expand over multiple years and are research-based. Others offer audience engagement within or beyond Museum walls. Artists intervene with Museum spaces and exhibitions, providing contrasting perspectives, critical commentary, and performance and engagement.

Location

Anchorage, Alaska: United States

The contemporary North is dynamic, full of specificity, and imbued with a strong sense of place. Through events and activities, we turn the Museum into a meeting place, a lab of activity, discussion and celebration. In doing so, we create a compelling narrative for the relevancy of the North. By activating our public and cultural spaces UP HERE, we create a new perception, a new stereotype.
