"The War on Humanity"
The artists present works that respond to a perceived reality of the 21st Century as a world besieged by Wars: economic, social, environmental and military. It is the artist's concern that since the peace and prosperity of the decade after WW2, only greater problems grow unattended in 2023. Like the mythical Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Humanity is faced daily with near infinite threats from all directions. Three walls of the installation, display works that look at the enormous number and quality of these threats, all human made. The artists ask themselves and the viewer, why Humanity's problems are not being addressed in a world of such enormous wealth and capacity to solve? On the fourth wall, the artists present visions of what a world that addressed those problems, might begin to look and act like.
