This presentation evaluates the contribution of photographic media within extensive and diverse contemporary engagements with Antarctica. What can science learn from art? How are artists contributing within debates including those associated with climate change? In the context of SPE, the focus of this presentation will be on how art operates, in what contexts, and to what effect? The presentation draws on interviews with artists who have undertaken residencies sponsored via government-funded national artists and writers programs in Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and, particularly, the United Kingdom.
