Gyre:The Plastic Ocean will be on show January 26-June 19, 2015 at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum: In Association with the Smithsonian Institution November 22 2014
A flip-flop discarded in Thailand finds its way to Hawaii, and a bottle cast off from a tsunami in Japan becomes Alaska’s beach litter. In a culture dependent upon the modern convenience of plastic, throwaway products of consumption are affecting oceans and shrinking our world as we all become connected through our trash.
A unique art and science exhibition, Gyre: The Plastic Ocean, brings the problem into perspective. Organized by the Anchorage Museum in Alaska, the exhibition explores the complex relationship between humans and the ocean in a contemporary culture of consumption.
Making Time Exhibition November 05 2014
In the autumn of 2014 the historic Penwith Gallery in St Ives will host Making Time: New Photographic Constructions, an exhibition of South West based photographic artists. The title, New Photographic Constructions, references the groupʼs intention to develop the photographic medium beyond its conventional boundaries, constructing complex yet subtle works through experimentation. The show demonstrates the diversity of photographic practice in Cornwall today and seeks to build on the avant-garde legacy of the Penwith Society, founded in 1949 under the distinguished leadership of Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and Bernard Leach. The five featured artists are Andy Hughes, Oliver Raymond- Barker, Will Arnold, Hannah Guy and Nicholas Hughes.
Cornwall at large and St Ives in particular has not given photography a significant platform of support, in terms of regularly providing exhibition space and other developmental activity. The exhibition represents a unique opportunity to provide this platform and to act as a catalyst for future photographic development in the area. Coinciding with this show Tate St Ives will present The Modern Lens: International Photography and the Tate collection. The exhibition will look at the exchange of avant-garde photographic practice between Japan, Europe and the America’s between 1928 and 1968. The Modern Lens will provide an illuminating historical context for the Penwith exhibition and both shows offer a rare opportunity to see high calibre photographic works in St Ives.
