Habana Outpost, Brooklyn’s first solar-powered restaurant, is hosting an exhibition of the Washed Up series. The opening will take place on Earth Day, April 22 from 6-8PM with a screening of the Washed Up short documentary film directed by Stefanie Durán.
From Durán’s statement:
In my current project, Washed Up, I address the issue of plastic pollution making its way across the ocean and onto the shores of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve. With more than twenty pre-Colombian archaeological sites, this UNESCO World Heritage site is also home to a vast array of flora and fauna and the world’s second largest coastal barrier reef. Unfortunately, Sian Ka’an is also a repository for the world’s trash, which is carried there by ocean currents from many parts of the globe.
