SPHERE / Edward Burtynsky & Minik Rosing

Talks Festival events
  • NAC Orchestra

  Sep 23, 2022 - 10 AM EDT

Co-hosted by the Royal Danish Library and the NAC Orchestra as part of the SPHERE Festival, Arctic Imagination is a not-to-be-missed speaker series pressing discussions on the transformation of the Arctic as the ice disappears — and the implications of climate change for geopolitics and human civilization as we know it. 

Speakers:

Edward Burtynsky 

Edward Burtynsky is regarded as one of the world’s most accomplished contemporary photographers. The predominant theme in his work is nature transformed through industry, he has documented some of the most poignant transformations of nature around the world. 

Minik Rosing 

Dr. Minik Thorleif Rosing is a world-renowned geologist from Greenland. Among Minik’s many titles and accomplishments, he is a professor of geology at the University of Copenhagen, previous leader of Danish ship-based scientific research expedition Galathea 3, and one of the artists behind Icewatch—a series of melting glacier ice blocks positioned in clock-formation outside notable places of governance. 

Host: Robyn Bresnahan
