Ice Station Zebra, led by American artist Emily Newman, is an anti-Cold War project designed to entertain, inform, and encourage children and adults on opposite sides of historical intrigue to play together. Using the language of old Hollywood, the aim of the project is to open an alternative channel for dialogue, in contrast to the current global media, which on both sides is reviving Cold War-era tensions and bringing out feelings of mistrust and paranoia in the civilian population.
Emily has been working on this project since 2014 and this exhibition will be one of the many milestones of its journey. Emily’s process has been captured on her Project: Ice Station Zebra Facebook page.
The F.I.N.E. Artist Residency Event will be held on Saturday, February 18, from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm at the Children’s Museum. The Ice Station Zebra Exhibit will run until Sunday, May 28 in the Children’s Museum Theater. For more information, visit the Ice Station Zebra event page.
