Envy comes from the Latin in – adversative – and videre, and translates as to ‘look against’, ‘unfavourably’ or better yet ‘to frown upon’ and refers to an unfailing emotion of human soul that has a timeless quality and cuts across all social groups.

The theme aims at sparking critical thinking about the malevolent side of social relations.

Points of Return

City:

Eligibility:

Arts platform A La Luz is seeking entries for Points of Return, an exhibition in summer 2021 that will shed light on the wide-raging environmental issues the world faces in this time of climate crisis, whilst also presenting paths to possible solutions. A La Luz will also produce a book featuring all the artists’ works selected for the exhibition.

A La Luz is calling artists from any origin at any career stage to submit works and projects that highlight some of the impacts that human actions have had on our planet and also foster critical thinking about positive change. The title of the exhibition, Points of Return, references the fact that we haven’t reached the dreaded “point of no return.” Therefore there are still many opportunities for our civilisation to curb climate change and move toward a balanced and more sustainable and harmonious way of inhabiting Earth. 

Points of Return will present some of the most alarming consequences that our actions have had on nature, but it will also highlight hope and the possibility of a bright future for our home planet.

Works from any art discipline are welcome, and projects that involve collaboration or dialogue with science are encouraged, but not required. Some of the environmental issues that the proposals might address are:

  • Plastic pollution
  • Air pollution
  • Biodiversity loss
  • Monoculture
  • Degraded soils
  • Extensive farming
  • Overfishing
  • Melting ice caps
  • Deforestation
  • Water pollution
  • Desertification
  • Extreme meteorological phenomena
  • Changing precipitation patterns
  • CO2 emissions and green house effect
  • Rising sea levels
  • Ocean acidification
  • Erosion

Works that have been developed from 2018 onwards are eligible for Points of Return. We also accept projects that are ongoing or that are currently being developed but that may have not come to a conclusion yet.

Between 10 and 15 artists will be selected, depending on the number of applications and the ability of the projects submitted to communicate ideas related to humanity’s impact on the environment and ways to have a healthier relationship with nature.

All selected artists will feature in a book related to the exhibition, in both digital, and eventually printed format.

Deadline for applications July 1st
