RAIR: Filthy Rich: Projects made possible by the waste stream

Exhibition Website

Jan 28 2017 - Mar 11 2017

Situated inside the Revolution Recovery construction waste recycling center in Northeast Philadelphia, RAIR (Recycled Artist In Residency) interrupts the waste stream in order to promote and support sustainable practices in the worlds of art & design. RAIR has facilitated over forty artist residencies, special projects and performances since its founding in 2010. Filthy Rich: Projects made possible by the waste stream focuses on twenty-five of those projects reflecting the emergence of two prevailing themes: “site as medium” and “material as medium.” Co-curated with Billy Blaise Dufala, Director of Residencies at RAIR and Lucia Thome, Director of Special Projects at RAIR, the presentation will include sculptural objects, photography, video & performance and process documentation.
