Arts Society Halifax – Scott of the Antarctic

Tue 10 Sep, 1:00pm at Red Brick Auditorium

Tickets: £8 , approx running time: 90mins

Captain Scott and his four companions died in the Antarctic in 1912. Although they had lost the race to the South Pole to Norwegian Roald Amundsen, their deaths unleashed an astonishing wave of tributes not only in Britain but around the world. We examine the different ways in which artists represented death in the polar wasteland and portrayed failure as heroic sacrifice.
