Artists today are envisioning a plurality of new worldviews. Brink, a group exhibition from 2030 Collective, seeks the emergence of futures we all wish to live in. The curatorial premise of Brink, begins from the assumption that art, with its ability to address our precarious present and make meaning from it, can lead to a deeper understanding of the environmental challenges that we face.
The term “brink” refers to the sense of being at a crucial or critical point, beyond which success or catastrophe may occur. It suggests a state of uncertainty, where the outcome of a situation is in the balance, and where even small actions or decisions can have a significant impact on the future.
In this context exhibition explores a present that has been clouded by futures contingent on an unfolding climate crisis. This exhibition invites us to reflect on the urgent need for action and our responsibility in this decade in determining how life plays out for centuries to come.
