A salient reflection on the climate crisis that drives home the interconnectedness of communities across the globe comes to the Fremantle Arts Centre as part of the Perth Festival.

Polarity: Fire & Ice, a poignant and timely reminder of the interconnectedness of our planet is coming to Fremantle Arts Centre as part of Perth Festival. The exhibit, which opens on Saturday 10 February, features immersive film and photographic works from artists living in Australia, the Arctic and Canada.

The exhibition focuses on climate catastrophes at both ends of the globe, from the melting ice caps in the Arctic and Antarctic to the devastating bushfires that Australians have become all too familiar with.

Polarity: Fire & Ice highlights the voices of First Nations artists as well as non-Indigenous artists who work closely with First Peoples and help them care for Country. The show aims to inspire cross-cultural, Indigenous-led understandings of climate solutions.

The free exhibition is showing 12 works including, Chanamee, Never Die, 2023, a major new cinematic work commissioned by Freemantle Arts Centre and the Indigenous Desert Alliance that centres upon the stories of the Karrinyarra people of the Pilbara.
