Description

The Umbrella Visual Arts program, in collaboration with A La Luz, presents the revolutionary, multimedia exhibition, Points of Return. Featuring the work of 27 international artists, Points of Return is the first physical exhibition of the acclaimed online exhibition of the same name.

This environmental art exhibition sees The Umbrella divided into themed spaces. A journey has been mapped out to allow visitors fresh and engaging insights into wide-ranging aspects of the climate crisis, its end destination that of resolute optimism. For, while it may seem that we are racing toward a closing act, as our planet’s average temperature rises year-on-year, solutions remain within sight. We have not yet reached that dreaded “point of no return” and artists are in the unique position of being able to offer scientific data in new ways. Through dynamic display and crossing several artistic disciplines, this show provides commentary, reflection and creative restorative strategies.

The exhibition is on display May 1–June 25, over two floors of The Umbrella and in The Umbrella Black Box Theater, supported by the following special events (RSVPs Required):

Saturday, May 6, 5–8 p.m.—Opening reception. Curator remarks and introduction to artists at 6 p.m. RSVP
