Culture Guide October 15 - 21

Take a look at how artists are using modernity as an inspiration for their works. Drawing on environmental issues, digitalisation and other themes that are new and pressing, these artists have used their creative outlets to explore now and the future in a myriad of different ways.


Lauren Berkowitz - Plastic Topographies

This exhibition is a hybrid dreamscape comprised of post-consumer plastic packing collected from the surrounding environment. This work reimagines our suburban world which is taken over by the waste that we create and is a bleak look into what could be our future.
