Beyond Plastic, 2005

“Beyond Plastic” was a group show of artists (Julie Allen, Benicia Gantner, Connie Harris, Julia Latané, Robert Strati and Jil Weinstock) working with plastic and its dérivés such as latex, vinyl, rubber and tape. Their work addressed issues of beauty, consumption, preservation, and space. From wedding cakes made of balloons to giant folds of stretched clear tape, these artists use mass produced materials to create one-of-a-kind objects blurring the lines between natural and fake beauty.
