Click to enlargeRAW MATERIALS: PLASTICS WITH PETER MARIGOLD & FRANCES SCOTT
May 17 - Aug 25, 2019
Raw Materials explores the forgotten industrial history of plastic in east London around the River Lea. The exhibition reveals the story of east London's central role in the invention and early development of plastics, showcasing some of the very first plastic objects alongside newly commissioned artwork which tells the story of this material’s remarkable journey. The project is supported by The National Lottery with funds awarded through the Heritage Lottery Fund, as well as by academic partner University College London.
 
An extensive events programme accompanies the exhibition, including boat tours along the River Lea, plastic recycling workshops and discussions on the future of plastics. See Bow Arts’ Whats On for more information.
