Exhibit Opening: The Plasticene

January 31 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join us this Friday, Jan 31, for the opening our latest Exhibit: Plasticene, curated by Kalliopi Monoyios. Plastic touches every aspect of our lives. It is in clothing, housewares, toys, medical devices, vehicles and infrastructure. It is such a hallmark of our time that geologists have joked that the current geological period, the Anthropocene, should be renamed the Plasticene.
How has it earned the reputation for being worthless? Shouldn’t it be the opposite? Shouldn’t it be revered?

Special curator talk and tour with Kalliopi Monoyios | 6-6:30PM
