About Robert Callender : Plastic Beach …poetry of the everyday
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Scottish artist Robert Callender (1932-2011) was driven by his interest in the craft of making and in the environment - particularly the coast, the sea and those who worked on it.
Focusing on a selection of the artist’s work, the exhibition addresses environmental concerns, ways and means of recycling; issues that underline the enduring and absolute relevance of Robert Callender’s ideas, particularly his later work which took a distinctly ecological turn with his significant installation 'Plastic Beach'.
Exhibition in partnership with Lateral Lab and the Estate of Robert Callender.
