This year, artist Samara Scott has been invited to create a brand new large-scale artwork which will adorn either side of the bridge’s fašade in the centre of the town.

Oct 26, 2019 - Jan 26, 2020
Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present ‘The World After’, a newly commissioned work and exhibition by artist David Blandy. Comprised of a film, installation and game, ‘The World After’ is a fictional tale which imagines a world after the Anthropocene era, a time in which humanity’s activities had detrimental effect on earth’s climate and environment. In this future world, human influence on the planet has faded following a catastrophic man-made ecological crisis, with those who remain having to find new ways to survive and form kin.
