In the Bag: The Art & Politics of the Reusable Bag Movement.
In the Bag traces the beginnings of the Reusable Bag Movement
and presents the growth of creative alternatives to plastic.
Featuring a selection of colorful reusable bags made from billboards,
juice boxes, rice bags and discarded plastic, the exhibition aims
to introduce grass- roots recycling movements sprouting up in small
resourceful communities in such locations as the Philippines,
Cambodia, India and Central America. The exhibition also highlights
the work of contemporary artists employing reusable processes
and exploring the iconic and physical characteristics of plastic
as a medium.
