Points of Return, A La Luz, Scotland/USA 01.03.22
Curated after an international open call, Points of Return presents works by 25 artists that highlight some of the impacts that human actions have had on our planet and foster critical thinking about positive change. The title of the exhibition references the fact that we haven’t reached the dreaded “point of no return” – there are still opportunities for our civilisation to curb climate change and move toward a balanced and more sustainable and harmonious way of inhabiting Earth. Points of Return brings to the surface the problematic relationship the human species has toward planet Earth and highlights how human activity, particularly since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, has induced climate breakdown. Yet, we firmly believe there are reasons for optimism. The projects exhibited show that there are multiple paths and approaches that can be taken, in order to restore the environmental balance that we have destabilised.
The exhibition is curated by artists David Cass & Gonzaga Gómez-Cortázar and can be seen on the Points of Return exhibition website.
A La Luz will also produce a book featuring all the artists’ works selected for the exhibition, and in the coming weeks and months announce various activities around the exhibition in order to expand upon the ideas expressed by the artists’ works and create conversations around art and its power to foster critical thinking and positive change.
