Plastic Fantastic is curated by Professor Felix Beck, New York University Abu Dhabi, Engineering Department, and Marie-Claire Bakker, Zayed University, College of Arts and Creative Enterprises, as part of the Precious Plastic WANA Conference 2018
Featuring work from more than 30 artists, created in reaction to the insidious nature of our reliance on plastic, this exhibition addresses the crisis by elevating plastic from waste to fine art, from toxic material to redemptive metaphor.
Open to the public
Participating artists will be present.
Presented in a series of new installations, these artists explore the very concept of environment - natural, artificial, virtual - and share a distinctly arch, speculative, conceptual practice, extrapolating imagined worlds within existing ones.
This exhibition takes viewers into the imagined worlds of four UAE-based artists: Areej Kaoud, Ayman Zedani, Jumairy, and Raja’a Khalid, who share a speculative practice, extrapolating imagined worlds within existing ones.
