The National Museum of XXI Century Arts (MAXXI) will explore artistic approaches to recycling in their exhibition RE-CYCLE. Strategies for Architecture, City and Planet. Mainly focused on the modern architecture of recycling, the exhibit will feature over 80 works of several artists working in various mediums. In addition to including architectural models and drawings, the exhibit will also feature music, film projections, and photography, including the work of Aperture-published photographer Pieter Hugo. Images from Hugo’s series Permanent Error—which focuses on Agbogbloshie, a large landfill for technological waste in Ghana—will be on display. Hugo’s series Looking Aside was featured in Aperture issue 186.
