Focal Point Gallery is pleased to announce its safe reopening from the 2nd of December.

One visitor (or household group) will be allowed in each of the three gallery spaces at a time. In line with national guidelines, visitors are asked to wear face masks and check into the Track and Trace system on arrival.

The gallery advises booking a slot for your visit, you can choose a morning or afternoon slot here. You won’t be turned away if you arrive without a booking, but please be aware there may be a short wait to allow for social distancing. All exhibitions are free.

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 inventive, and at times cautionary reflections on a future that is conditional on 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).

To Dream Effectively runs until 17 January 2021. View an excellent video tour of the exhibition below to whet your appetite.

Artists include: Larry Achiampong, Sophia Al-Maria, A.S.T. (Alliance of the Southern Triangle), Diann Bauer, Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, Caspar Heinemann, Leyla Pillai, Tabita Rezaire, Himali Singh Soin, Emilija Škarnulytė, Rosie Grace Ward. Please see here for Selected Biographies.
