The Plastic Bag Store at MASS MoCA

May 9 @ 8:00 am - September 2 @ 5:00 pm

$25

Step inside The Plastic Bag Store — a tongue-in-cheek “supermarket” — to explore a darkly funny and often tender story about the enduring effects of single-use plastics. Created by artist Robin Frohardt, this immersive, multimedia experience melds installation art, theater, film, and a whole lot of humor to spark critical reflection on our culture of consumption and convenience. Frohardt has meticulously hand-sculpted thousands of items that have been ingeniously up-cycled: 2-liter bottles become “Plastic Dew,” orange tarp becomes carrots, plastic caps are “capperonnis” on frozen pizza, and “free-range” plastic bags transform into a dozen eggs. The Plastic Bag Store runs May 9–Sept 2, 2024 with multiple timed activations throughout each day.
