Just when you thought you will be getting bored in the post-MOFO slump, the MMT has come to the rescue with our next exhibition: ‘Beach Couture: A Haute Mess’ by Marina DeBris.
Plastic pollution has become ubiquitous in our oceans and on our shores. Sydney-based artist Marina DeBris transforms garbage found in the ocean or washed up on the beach into intricately constructed garments. She is a campaigner against ocean pollution and hopes through her art she can show how ‘the waste we create keeps coming back to haunt us’. This fascinating exhibition also incorporates works from an art & science collaboration on the impact of microplastics in our oceans, with works by Dr Jennifer Lavers, Annalise Rees, Katherine Cooper, Di Masters, Peter Walsh, and Sophie Carnell.
The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday 30 June and will run until 20 September. The museum is open every day 9 to 5.
