Saturday, May 6 | 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Room 119, Samson Pavilion, Health Education Campus, Cleveland, Ohio.

CELDF’s Tish O’Dell will be present with information on Rights of Nature and how plastics interfere with those rights at this free public event as part of the community programming for the exhibition Everlasting Plastics, curated by the Cleveland gallery SPACES for the 2023 Venice Architecture Biennial.

Join local environmentally-focused community organizations for casual but crucial conversations on art, impact, and the environment while hearing virtually from the curatorial team and participating artists. Joyce P. Huang, Director of Cleveland’s City Planning Commission, will moderate a virtual conversation with Lauren Leving (MoCA), and Tizziana Baldenebro (Executive Director, SPACES) live from Venice, Italy as they prepare for the exhibition’s grand opening!

Everlasting Plastics explores the infinite ways in which plastic permeates our bodies and our world. It offers intimate and political accounts of our fraught relationship with the material that—rather than making a case for or against plastic—attempts to register our ongoing relationship to it, its impact on material cultures, and the harm and possibilities it entangles for our collective futures. This event is an invitation to see the theme of Everlasting Plastics as no mere static event, but rather as an evolving shared conversation.
