Through the Eyes of a Penguin: The Art and Design of the Arctic Circle, runs from May 14 to 26 at Westminster Reference Library, London WC2, and showcases the original artwork created for the Arctic Circle by Damian O’Hara and London/Paris-based design collective Pika Pika, including posters, postcards, prints, projections, original draft drawings and all the ephemera in between. Arctic Circle performance photography by Rosie Reed Gold and Diana Jarvis will also be on show.
Arctic Circle is London’s most persistently inventive, progressive, passionate yet delightfully unpretentious concert promoter and producer, and an increasingly vital component of the capital’s 21st century live music culture. With a track record for staging sometimes elaborate, always magical themed events on the stages, in the foyers – sometimes even up in the gods – of London’s major arts centres, Arctic Circle is now a byword for going the extra mile when it comes to presentations of cutting-edge international musicians in some of London’s most atmospheric, characterful venues. The Arctic Circle’s convivial, unassuming ethos is underscored by its infamous penguin-themed visuals and a spirit of child-like wonder.
