This catalog was published in conjunction with the exhibition “Plastic Show” at Almine Rech Gallery London, February 9 — March 25, 2017. The exhibition itself is a selection of works by seminal California artists from the Light and Space movement: Mary Corse (b.1945), Robert Irwin (b.1928), Craig Kauffman (1932–2010), John McCracken (1934–2011), and DeWain Valentine (b.1936) — five artists who, through a series of individual explorations, went on to investigate the broad potential that plastics could yield.

Known for their pioneering work with various synthetic resins and synthetic polymers during the 1960s and 1970s, these artists are today recognized not only for their active roles in the development of plastics as a newly discovered medium in art, but also for their sophisticated techniques and at times even quasi-acrobatic prowess required to shape them into the seamless, translucent, luscious volumes.
