The Palmer Museum of Art at Penn State presents “Plastics@thePalmer,” a diverse series of artist lectures, films, gallery talks and “entangled conversations” with scholars as part of the exhibition “Plastic Entanglements: Ecology, Aesthetics, Materials,” on view through June 17.

“Much like the exhibition itself, the programs address the environmental, aesthetic, and social implications of plastic and how it infiltrates virtually every aspect of our lives,” said Erin Coe, director of the Palmer Museum of Art.

The exhibition, organized by the Palmer Museum of Art, features 60 works exploring the complex story of plastic — from drawings and photographs to video installations and sculptures fabricated from found plastic — by 30 emerging and mid-career contemporary artists from around the globe.
