Plastic Pollution Art Installations in Senegal and Mexico

This year I have become much more interested in art and what it can communicate about various experiences. Topics surrounding cultural identity and migration primarily grabbed my attention, but I also viewed some fascinating installations commenting on plastic pollution and the environment. The cultural contexts of Fabrice Monteiro’s and Alejandro Durán’s installations allowed me to connect with them at a deep and impactful level. It’s really encouraging to see artists challenging communities around the world to take care of their land.
