“Plastic is a ubiquitous material that has found a place in every nation and culture. In essence we as modern humans have become the ‘Plastic People.’ From it’s source as a synthetic derived from petrochemicals, we can examine the benefits, the detriments, the creative applications and the final resting places that plastic finds itself.”
Plastic People was a non-commercial group exhibition I curated and organized, held from April 19th – May 2nd, 2013 at the Gallery on 47th in Yellowknife, NWT. This was a follow-up to the New Minds, New Media exhibition held in 2012, featuring a variety of mediums from photography to felts to mixed media and 3D printed plastic.
This exhibition was made possible with the support of the NWT Arts Council and the Gallery on 47th Street.
