Artist's Talk: Scaling the Heights: Miniature Mountaineering
Artist Stephen Livingstone will speak about his work on Scaling the Heights, a multi-facetted project in collaboration with Dr. Abbie Garrington of Durham University which seeks to explore the rich culture of mountaineering literature. A major element of the project has been the development of a series of miniature mountaineering events where a pair of vintage Action Man figures recreate historic Himalayan expeditions by climbing the shelves of important mountaineering libraries and archives such as at the National Library of Scotland, the Alpine Club and Royal Geographical Society.
FREE of charge. No booking necessary.
The project will culminate in an exhibition at the Oriental Museum in September and is supported by Durham University, Arts Council England, Montane and the Mountain Heritage Trust.
