90N North Pole Project: Understand the Project
 
In June 2008, Miami artist Xavier Cortada will travel to the North Pole, ninety degrees North (90N), to create site-specific installations exploring our connection to the natural world. The work addresses global climate change and will include the reinstallation of the "Longitudinal Installation" and "Endangered World" (originally created in the South Pole, 90S, during January 2007 as part of a National Science Foundation Antarctic Artist and Writers residency).

Using melting Arctic sea ice, Cortada will create a series of "Arctic Ice Paintings" similar to those he created in 2007 with melting Antarctic sea ice.
 

The artist will also plant a green flag at at the Earth's northernmost point to encourage the reforestation of native trees in the world below.

The New York Foundation for the Arts has selected "90N" as one of it's sponsored artists projects.  Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to NYFA online to support Xavier Cortada's "90N" project.
