Exhibition of the IWWG ART Gallery
Chania, Crete, Greece
26 September - 7 October, 2016
The IWWG ART Gallery participates at CRETE 2016, 5th International Conference on Industrial and Hazardous Waste Management, with a real exhibition of art, design, photography and fashion from up-cycled waste material.
It will be a major achievement for the Gallery to step out of the virtual dimension and take on a tangible form, when selected items from the on-line collection will be showcased in the Sailing Club Café, a beautiful space in the picturesque harbor of Chania.
The location of the exhibition also ties in with the main theme of the Crete conference, as particular attention will be given to the problematic of plastic pollution in the sea. The opening of the exhibition, on the afternoon of 26th September, will mark the start of the conference and it is likely to draw many visitors, not only from the delegates list, throughout the week.
What better way than through waste, creatively transformed into fascinating art, to capture the attention of the public and build an awareness of the current overproduction/overconsumption crisis, the ruthless contamination and escalating degradation of our environment?
In September 2016, the Gallery will sail on towards unchartered seas, with the mission to inform, engage and connect with the widest audience, in search of better waste reduction solutions and a cleaner future.
