Updated closure information

By Moira Finucane

An austere and bloody mutant.

Part of Finucane's globally acclaimed Art vs Extinction Suite.

Stitching live museum exhibition to immersive theatre and a mass-mortality event. Exploring grief, loss, isolation, stark beauty, deep time, ice melting and hope – all at epic scale.

Inviting humans into an imagined-Antarctica, the only place on earth with no permanent human habitation, to imagine a future together.
