AboutArctic 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.
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, 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 will also be on show.
We open on May 14th and run until May 26th.
It takes place at Westminster Reference Library, 35 St Martin's Street, London, WC2 7HP, 1st Floor exhibition space. And it's completely free.
Nearest tube is Leicester Square.
