MATERIAL AFTERLIFE: AN EXHIBITION OF RECYCLED ART
Opening Reception April 10, 6–9 PM
April 10–August 8
Material Afterlife explores the rich terrain developed by artists who address waste and need in society, are mindful of environmental cause and effect, and expand ideas of consumption through a cyclic approach of material use. This terrain has never been more fruitful than with the work of today’s artists. This exhibition will assert the growing relevance of artwork that examines environmental degradation, consumerism, personal value, and frugality, as well as celebrate the significance of recycling, sustainable methods, and thrift-store culture as medium and subject matter for artists.
