The praised monumental sculpture Tipping Point by artist duo Bigert & Bergström opens in Stockholm on 1:st of June. During the exhibition from 2-19 of June we will also host four seminars with invited experts, climate scientists, artists and politicians at Liljevalchs art gallery that will deepen the discussion about climate and humanity.
The inability of humanity to handle the climate crisis is driving ecosystems and societies ever closer to the breaking point. Researchers are warning about tipping points, where self reinforcing and often irrevirsible changes to life-dependant systems are set in motion.
During the UN-meeting Stockholm+50 in June Tipping Point, the praised monumental sculpture by artist duo Bigert & Bergström will be exhibited. Close by, at Liljevalchs art gallery four seminars with artists, researchers, experts and politicians will discuss the hopes and fears of the current climate crises.
Welcome to the artwork and seminar series Tipping Points – humanity at the thresholds of the planet. What can be done? What must be done? What must we absolutely not do? And what does art have to do with it?
