Event Details

Oops. This event is over, but we have plenty of more great events coming up on our calendar.

  • April 19, 2014 - September 14, 2014

Evelyn Rydz (b. 1979, Miami) received an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 2005. Rydz explores America's coasts, photographing the manufactured remnants of modern life that wash up on the shoreline. Plastic's resilience is exactly the quality that makes it valuable to us, but what we use, discard, and dump in the sea is useless to marine life. Materials that never decay become a permanent part of the oceanic ecosystem. Nature's attempt to reclaim these cast-offs fascinates Rydz, who draws our attention to their transformation on their long journey along the global ocean current, and to the larger implications of society's everyday actions. This exhibition is the first to include Rydz's bold photographs, which, combined with her delicate drawings, depict these fragments in surprising ways.
