Robert Callender : Plastic Beach ...poetry of the everyday

12 May 2018 until 8 July 2018
City Art Centre

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 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.
