Cabinet Pieces: ‘Plastic, c’est chic’ New Materials for Art

The Cabinet Piece show ‘Plastic, c’est chic. New Materials for Art’ demonstrates the infinite creative possibilities inherent to synthetic materials. Whether polyester or polypropylene, epoxy resin or formaldehyde, synthetics grew into popular artistic materials in Fluxus and Pop Art circles on account of their omnipresence in everyday life and immense versatility. The show features works by such artists as Christo, Claes Oldenbourg, Niki de Saint Phalle, Ben Vautier and Andy Warhol.
