The Year That Made Antarctica

The Year That Made Antarctica

Over dinner in the spring of 1950 a party of scientists produced an ambitious proposal for a global year of science: the International Geophysical Year was born. With a heavy emphasis on Antarctica, thousands of people from dozens of countries came together to learn about our planet.

Discovery through Display

Mon 23 January - Fri 10 March

Alison Richard Building

Displays that take inspiration from the juxtaposition of art works and objects in the Kettle’s Yard House, will occupy the Alison Richard Building. When Jim Ede
created Kettle’s Yard in 1957, he arranged artworks, found objects and furniture in ways that simultaneously responded to, and influenced, the viewer’s movement around the spaces – challenging conventional experiences of viewing art in galleries. These conventions will be further tested by installing artworks and objects from the Kettle’s Yard Collection within the dynamic, multifunctional spaces of the Alison Richard Building.
