Explore the history of plastic with two of the curators of Plastic: Remaking Our World

Drop in to hear about our latest exhibition Plastic: Remaking Our World from Curator Charlotte Hale and Assistant Curator Laurie Bassam. Together they will explore the history of plastic and invite you to think afresh about the promise and challenges of this extraordinary material.

Plastic Lab invites you to explore the promise and problem of plastic. Housing Precious Plastic recycling machines and hosting a dynamic programme of events, this free interactive space encourages visitors of all ages to learn, question, challenge, and act on some of the most important issues relating to plastic today. From board games to plastic sorting stations and pop-up talks, drop in and explore some of the free things you can see, do, and get involved in.

Plastic: Remaking Our World is the first exhibition co-produced by V&A Dundee, Vitra Design Museum, and maat, Lisbon with curators from V&A South Kensington.
