At The Gallery / Plastopia by Yeonmi Kim

June 14 @ 12:00 pm July 7 @ 5:00 pm PDT

June 14 – July 07, Massy Arts will host Plastopia, a new exhibition by British Columbia-based visual artist Yeonmi Kim.

Kim’s current work considers, and is inspired by, sustainable practices in order to help raise awareness and motivate change about the amount of plastic and materials humans waste in daily life. This series of works uses discarded materials to create art that addresses environmental changes and consumerism, while celebrating the needs and joy of nature.

The pieces that will be showcased were produced by sewing recycled plastic packages to produce 2D wall pieces of maps showing locations that are suffering the severe effects of climate change.

Plastopia also includes work that addresses the threats to our oceans from both the climate crisis and plastic pollution.

The Massy Arts Gallery is located at 23 East Pender Street in Chinatown, Vancouver.
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 12pm to 5pm.
Entrance is free, and masks are mandatory.
