The Antarctic Biennale presentation to the Spanish press, scientific and business societies

On June 20 commissioner Alexander Ponomarev, architect Hani Rashid and director of the Quo Artis Foundation Tatiana Kourochkina presented the Antarctic Biennale project to the Spanish press and later at the Museu Marítim de Barcelona the Biennale was presented to the local community.
A video of the current exhibition in The Antarctic Pavilion ANTARCTICA: RE-CYCLICAL by Studio Hani Rashid at IoA, Institute of Architecture – University of Applied Arts Vienna was also shown to the audience.
It was a really spectacular and symbolic venue for the ‪Antartica Biennale‬ press preview. Maritime Museum in ‪#‎Barcelona‬ (MMB) is located in the Royal Arsenal of Barcelona.
In this stunning location in April 1492 , Christopher Columbus presented to Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand of ‪Spain‬ his plans and with a signed agreement he and crew started immediately preparations for a new and seemingly mad voyage towards the flat endless horizon in search of the unknown.
Certainly an apropos location for us to announce our soon to sail ship to‪ Drakes Passage‬ and ‪Antartica‬ in March 2017.
