To open the new exhibition On the Beach during National Recycling Week, the artist and curator Tim Pearn will be joined by Dr Ric Spencer, artist, writer and curator, and Sara Hajbane, environmental scientist, to discuss the intersections of art and science in Tim’s exhibition. 

On the Beach is a thought-provoking look at the insidious build-up of small-scale plastic detritus on the wild and pristine beaches of Western Australia.
