Nocturnes on Ice Comes to the Museum of Natural Sciences

The International Polar Foundation together with APECS Belgium and the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences are proud to present Nocturnes on Ice, a polar photography exhibition opening on Thursday, May 19th at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Brussels.

The opening event for the exhibition will start at 5 pm and will feature workshops and a chance to meet some of the people who took the photos featured in the exhibition, including some International Polar Foundation staff members. Visitors attending the opening night of the exhibition will also be able to learn more about the work being done at the world’s first zero emission polar research station, the Princess Elisabeth Antarctica, from IPF staff who have contributed photos.

Scientists, logisticians, and technicians who have participated in Belgian polar research expeditions have contributed photos to the exhibition. The goal is to raise awareness of the current issues affecting the polar regions, including unprecedented climate change.

Special thanks goes out to Nicolas Herinckx, Henri Robert, Martin Leitl, and Timothée Grosrenaud from IPF, as well as Sarah Del Ben from Venturi.

The exhibition will remain open to the public through Sunday, May 22nd.

Brussels Nocturnes is a citywide project that allows the public to visit different museums and art centres around Brussels at night.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the exhibition!
