Paul Walde’s Alaska Variations, a series of 11 new sound and video works, will be at the Anchorage Museum as part of The View from Here: The Arctic At The Centre of the World curated by Julie Decker. These works were developed as part of a residency that took place in Anchorage in the month of February.
This exhibition presents both inside and outside views of the Arctic—both the Alaska Arctic and the Arctic that is international and borderless. Although the artists are from Alaska and from northern and southern places around the world, each shares an interest and investment in the North, in how humans respond the landscape, and in how the changing landscape requires a view to both the past and the future.
Participating artists include: Nicholas Galanin (Alaska), Anna Hoover (Alaska/Washington), Jeroen Toirkens (Holland), Derek Coté (Michigan), Marek Ranis (North Carolina), Christoph Kapeller (California), Paul Walde (Canada), John Grade (Washington), Magali Daniaux and Cedric Pigot (France), Mary Mattingly (New York), Annesofie Norn (Denmark), Bryndis Snæbjörnsdóttir and Mark Wilson (Iceland/England).
The exhibition runs from May 06 until October 02.
