Crochet Coral Reef: TOXIC SEAS Tour
Thursday 11:00 AM–12:00 PM
Join your fellow attendees for a docent-led tour of the Crochet Coral Reef: TOXIC SEAS at the Museum of Art and Design located in Midtown Manhattan. Tickets for the tour are $10.
This exhibit celebrates the tenth anniversary of the “Crochet Coral Reef” (2005–present), an ongoing project by sisters Margaret and Christine Wertheim and their Los Angeles–based organization, the Institute for Figuring. Mixing crocheted yarn with plastic trash, the work fuses mathematics, marine biology, feminist art practices, and craft to produce large-scale coralline landscapes, both beautiful and blighted. At once figurative, collaborative, worldly, and dispersed, the “Crochet Coral Reef” offers a tender response to the dual calamities facing marine life: climate change and plastic trash. Transportation will not be provided.
