Nurdles in Egypt

...from The 2000 Year Old Man: Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks' classic comedy album of 1961:

CR: So you knew Shakespeare? He wrote 37 of the world's greatest plays...
MB: 38
CR: 38? We only know 37. It must never have come to light.
MB: Came to light!!???  It closed in Egypt!!...I backed that play....Queen Alexandra and Murray.

Well, Queen Alexandra and Murray may have closed in Egypt but nurdles and microplastics from Kehoe Beach are in Cairo, Egypt this month at Darb 1718 Contemporary Art and Culture Center as part of Out to Sea? a traveling exhibit organized by the Museum für Gestaltung Zürich. Click here for the Facebook page dedicated to the show in Egypt.

The international tour of "Out to Sea? The Plastic Garbage Project" goes on and on!

The exhibition was just at the Universalmuseum Joanneum: Naturkundemuseum Graz, Austria (green dot) and opened on June 26 at Utzon Center in Aalborg, Denmark (yellow dot). 

Red dots mark the numerous previous exhibition locations.
