Show information:

anthropocene: a proposed epoch in which humans have become a geological force permanently altering the way Earth behaves as a system.

no return: textures of the anthropocene is a curated group show that focuses on issues of urbanism, post-industrialism, environmentalism, catastrophe, and intersections between these contemporary conditions. It is about the world we’ve inherited and possibilities for the future. How we can understand our role in a society where place has become an abstraction, where the mechanisms of production and distribution are more or less invisible and irrelevant to many.

The works in no return contend with the world as we have made it and offer perspectives on the changing geographies of now. They present challenges, not solutions, and in this way hope to spur dialogue on the implications of human life in the face of imminent social, political, and environmental change.

Works in sculpture, video, photography, painting, and installation by: Paul Clipson, Anais De Los Santos, Christian Schick, Julian Bendana, Leslie Mueller, Ryan Zweng, Alex Vie, Christopher Tolan, Neeti Fidurko, Gray Tolhurst, Ariella Robinson. and more.
