Antarctic Village Métisse Flag

First installed in Antarctica by Lucy and Jorge Orta during their 2007 expedition No Borders, the Antarctic Village Métisse Flag represents a kaleidoscope of different nations. The blending of the flags symbolize a common worldwide identity where all nations and people coexist. It is meant as a supranational emblem of human rights.
These flags were installed in Olin Memorial Library and Usdan University Center as part of the exhibition Lucy+Jorge Orta: Food-Water-Life currently showing in Zilkha Gallery. The show explored major concerns of the 21st century: biodiversity, environmental conditions, climate change and exchange among peoples.
