An exploration of a new horizon for our common collective future on planet Earth through The Edge, an exhibition by Álvaro Laiz.
Through storytelling, artists are in a unique position to catalyse change and lead by example, helping us transition to a more sustainable future for all. Artists can play a vital role in the arts and in the community to promote and scale up the solutions to climate change and waste by embedding environmental sustainability practices in their work.
Beyond the Edge aims to explore new horizons in environmental practices through The Edge, an exhibition by Álvaro Laiz, a Spanish contemporary artist and National Geographic Fellow and Explorer. Beyond the Edge is a project by Álvaro Laiz and UreCulture.
Álvaro Laiz embarked on a seven-year journey from the Bering Strait in Russia to the Americas, working with indigenous peoples to explore concepts of identity, time and space. The culmination of this work was his exhibition The Edge which took place in 2022 at the Museo Universidad de Navarra (Spain). The Edge featured photography, large-scale video and immersive installations. You can take a virtual tour of the exhibition here.
