‘To Dream Effectively’ is a group exhibition across Focal Point Gallery, Big Screen Southend and Southend High Street that brings together international artists whose work offers cautionary reflections on a future that can still be influenced by how we dream it to be. It takes inspiration from the ground-breaking novels of science-fiction writer Ursula K Le. Guin (1929 to 2018), in particular The Lathe of Heaven, 1971, which was strongly influenced by the principles of Taoism (an ancient philosophical and religious belief of Chinese origin that emphasises living in harmony with ‘the Way’).
