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 – which describes the literal entanglements of animals and plastic detritus as well as the plasticity of global networks – the exhibition assembles artistic investigations of humanity’s reliance on a material that is at once ubiquitous and, for that reason, virtually invisible. Featuring an international array of emerging and mid-career artists, Plastic Entanglements: Ecology, Aesthetics, Materials argues that plastic globally entangles categories of the aesthetic, the ethical, the material, the technological, and the critical.
