story of plastic is as complex as the polymer chains that make
up its unique material properties. Plastic Entanglements brings
together sixty works by thirty contemporary artists to explore the
environmental, aesthetic, and technological entanglements of our ongoing
love affair with this paradoxical, infinitely malleable
substance. Both miraculous and malignant, ephemeral yet relentlessly
present, plastic infiltrates our global networks, our planet, and even
our bodies. This major loan exhibition features work by an international
roster of emerging and mid-career artists.
Visitors will encounter a varied array of artwork, from meticulous
drawings, photographs, and video installations to 3D-printed objects and
sculptures fabricated from found plastic.
