A Tipping Point is defined as the level at which the momentum for change becomes unstoppable. This group exhibition centres on global climate change and the ways that artists have chosen to highlight these issues. Critical intersections in the unstable future of our environments and economies have also brought about knock-on effects including migration, conflict and political instability.

Featuring the responses of national and international artists, this exhibition will showcase a range of artistic practices; from material-led interventions into our environment, through to cross-disciplinary research in partnership with scientists and ecologists, and documentation of social activism. Artists include Heather and Ivan Morison, Dalziel and Scullion, Lori Nix, Virginia Colwell, Merel Karhof and the Paris-based collective He He.

The exhibition will also provide an opportunity to view an exciting new commission by Gerry Judah, who, in association with the charity Christian Aid, undertook a research trip to India to see for himself how climate change has affected the inhabitants of some of the most densely populated cities on earth.
