A multi-disciplinary art exhibition by thalassophiles


Pale Blue Dot Collective presents its inaugural exhibition, Rising, exploring the anthropogenic impact on our coasts and seas. The sea provides an apt metaphor for our tumultuous political times; moments of serenity before stormy waves break the shoreline. As a stateless entity, it is shared by everyone, but by no means shared well. Human intervention has tampered with the natural order of things. Increasing human population, global temperatures, over-consumption and pollution are having a detrimental effect. 

The sea has oft been the artist’s muse but we hope to present in Rising a thoughtful, sometimes funny, but always imaginative take on the state of our oceans. And whilst doing it have as little impact on our beautiful planet as possible. 

The exhibition title refers not only to rising global temperatures and sea levels but also us, standing together in protest for an alternative against the politics of denial and short-term solutions, which favour financial

There will be an artist film screening to accompany the Rising exhibition on 29th September starting at 6.45pm.
