Plastic Entanglements: Ecology, Aesthetics, Materials features contemporary artwork investigating the complex cultural and material nexus that is “Plastic.” Organized around the curatorial concept of entanglement, the exhibition explores plastic as an artistic material and considers the environmental consequences of its widespread use. The exhibition includes an international roster of contemporary artists whose work—like plastic itself—ultimately entangles categories of the aesthetic, the ethical, the material, the technological, and the critical.
