The Society’s highly-acclaimed Shackleton centenary exhibition, Enduring Eye: the Antarctic Legacy of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Frank Hurley, was on free public display at the Library of Birmingham in 2017.
The Enduring Eye exhibition was opened at the Library of Birmingham on the 20 January 2017. It was on display until Saturday 22 April 2017.
Honouring the achievements of Sir Ernest Shackleton and the men of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition of 1914-1917, the exhibition’s newly-digitised images reveal previously unseen details of life on the expedition both before and after the Endurance sank through the ice of the Weddell Sea.
Enduring Eye’s opening in Birmingham follows its 2016 residencies in London and Manchester. Following Birmingham, it will travel to venues in Scotland and the North-East.
The exhibition’s tour is linked to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a new project, Shackleton’s Endurance: discovering our shared Antarctic Heritage, focusing on connections between the expedition and local people and businesses.
