PLASTIC: Can’t Live With It, Can’t Live Without It

PLASTIC: Can’t Live With It, Can’t Live Without It | Tuesday 25 August  – Saturday 19 December 2020 | Regional Cultural Centre
――― Level 5 ―――

PLASTIC, a touring exhibition, features the work of over thirty national and international artists, designers and scientists, as well as a newly commissioned work by Donegal based sound artist Ed Devane.

Plastic has great power, and with great power comes great responsibility. It has changed our daily lives and our environment more than any other material. The unsustainability of our relationship with plastic is well documented, but to stop using plastic is not an option. Its use has revolutionised industrial design, and more essentially, modern medicine relies on plastic so heavily that even the most basic medical procedures would be unimaginable without it.

This exhibition, which is produced with the support of Science Foundation Ireland, is Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin’s first national touring exhibition. In each location, an artist has been commissioned to work with the local community to co-design an artwork reflecting the cultural history, place and relationship between the people and their environment.
