ASLD exhibition The Plasticene

The Plasticene

JAN 31–MAR 15, 2020 | In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, join us for an exploration of the material we love to hate: plastic. This exhibit explores the many ways plastic touches and shapes contemporary art and, by extension, life. Forward-looking and hopeful, you’ll come away from The Plasticene with a greater appreciation for all the things plastic does well and with hope that solutions to its environmental toll are within reach. Curated by Kalliopi Monoyios.
