Julian Charrière

Towards No Earthly Pole

MASI LACExhibitions

Through the exhibition "Towards No Earthly Pole" MASI Lugano wishes to pay tribute to Swiss artist Julian Charrière, one of the most innovative of his generation. MASI is delighted to be the very first museum to present Julian’s Charrière latest namesake project, a film he started in 2017 and for which he travelled to some of the world’s harshest climates. Touching upon the history of science, the development of media culture, the romance of exploration as well as the contemporary ecological crisis, the major exhibition “Towards No Earthly Pole” resonates with Arctic and glacial geographic contexts, respectively, while evoking ecological and social conditions that transcend regional boundaries. In this exhibition Charrière turns his attention to links between colonial and environmental histories (in both polar and tropical regions), while offering wider reflections upon the pathos of the contemporary geographical imaginary.
