Future 20: Last Place On Earth – Online

Future 20: Last Place On Earth at HOME Manchester, Manchester 17 August — 31 December 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Let’s pretend we are from the future. Mother Nature is on the edge of collapse. Where will we be when it dies? And how will the world look when it is reborn?

Last Place On Earth is a brand new digital experience from the Future 20 collective, commissioned by HOME.

Set in a world that has experienced a devastating eco-catastrophe, Last Place On Earth offers an alternative place to reconnect with Mother Nature. Initially intended to be an exhibition in HOME’s gallery, the coronavirus lockdown meant the artists had to reconfigure their practice for a digital space where size and scale are no concern and it became possible to build a world with no limitations.

Last Place On Earth is created by the Future 20 collective, HOME’s 12 month, cross-art-form training initiative for a collective of young artists aged 18-25.
