One month left to get your Antarctica passports at Rodman Hall

Published on August 25 2014


A summer-long contemporary art exhibit at Brock University’s Rodman Hall about water is heading into its final month. And so is your chance to become a citizen of Antarctica by getting your hands on an Antarctica World Passport at the art centre.

The Source: Rethinking Water Through Contemporary Art, which opened at Congress 2014 “Borders without Boundaries” at Brock this past spring, examines the many social and cultural facets of this vital resource that is such an integral part of our daily lives.

“The subject of water is very topical, people are thinking about their relationship to this essential resource,” says Stuart Reid, director of Rodman Hall who also curated the four-month exhibit that runs until Sept. 28.

“It’s also a meta-topic in that it’s hard to be specific about it, but it encompasses so many aspects of contemporary life,” he says. “Contemplating water leads us to confront our frail relationship with the natural world.”

One aspect of The Source exhibit at Rodman Hall, which has generated a lot of interest and discussion, is the on-site Antarctica World Passport office created by internationally-renowned artists Jorge + Lucy Orta.
