Reused & Recycled

Juried by Jean Shin

What is the relationship between recycling and art? We constantly seek out ways to deal with what we produce, consume, and discard. The aesthetic potential of trash is well established in artistic practice. It has had its place in avant-garde since the early twentieth century, when Marcel Duchamp introduced the idea of the readymade: discarded, modified works, remanufactured and displayed as an art. Site:Brooklyn is seeking artists whose practice continues to investigate the relationship between discarded materials and art. We are looking for works across all mediums
