Elysium Arctic

Exhibition and Shows

1 Aug 2019 to 1 Apr 2020

Explore the icy realms of the Arctic, Earth’s northernmost region.

In 2015 a team of explorers, photographers and scientists sailed through the High Arctic of Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland to document their unique environments. Together they created Elysium Arctic, a series of artworks capturing the icons of the polar north – majestic icebergs and glaciers, playful wildlife and stunning views of land and sea. Elysium Arctic also records the devastating impact of climate change in the earth’s northernmost regions.

The Elysium projects are run by Michael Aw, internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer, explorer and conservationist. Michael believes that art can inspire people to take action against climate change and save some of the most vulnerable places on earth.

Braving sub-zero temperatures, sea ice and some very curious polar bears, the Elysium team has produced a breathtaking visual journey through the Arctic. Join them on their journey as you wander along the Darling Harbour foreshore – then pop into the museum to learn more about the Arctic region.
