Kilimanjaro: The Last Glacier by Ian van Coller
May 5 - July 1, 2017
Reception & Pagethrough:
Friday, May 5th | 5:00-7:30 pm
Ian van Coller has accompanied climate change researchers on expeditions to study tropical glaciers. Defined by latitude, most tropical glaciers will be extinct within the next decade. Centerpiece of the exhibition is an oversize artist's book, Kilimanjaro: The last Glacier. It features landscapes and portraits of porters. Scale aligns the book with its subject, and recalls ledgers and atlases, thus conjuring themes of archiving, mapping, and exploration.
