American actress, filmmaker, and humanitarian, Angelina Jolie shares photos of her visit to Duke Riley’s exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum on social media. She didn’t want her fans and followers to be left out so she decided to share her experience.
In DEATH TO THE LIVING, Long Live Trash, Brooklyn-based artist Duke Riley uses materials collected from beaches in the northeastern United States to tell a tale of both local pollution and global marine devastation.
Riley’s contemporary interpretations of historical maritime crafts_ such as scrimshaw, sailor’s valentines, and fishing lures – confront the catastrophic effect that the oil, food, and beverage industries have had on the environment through single-use plastics.
The actress wrote “Z and I went to see the @dukerileystudio exhibition at the Brooklyn museum.
In Duke’s latest show at the Brooklyn Museum, DEATH TO THE LIVING, Long Live Trash, his reinterpretations of maritime folk art -, made using trash removed from the ocean – expose plastic pollution that, along with climate change and habitat loss, are pushing our oceanic ecosystem to collapse.
