This exhibition is inspired by Food Shift, an Earth Island Institute sponsored project working in the Bay Area to build a more just and sustainable food system that curbs waste, empowers communities, respects the environment and nourishes all. Food Shift educates and empowers consumers, businesses and communities by increasing awareness about food waste and inspiring food related behavior change.
Work included in this exhibit will explore themes that intersect with Food Shift's goals and will approach these themes from a diverse range of perspectives, including critiquing existing systems, examining environmental and human impacts of food waste/production, and proposing alternatives.
Artists are invited to submit work to Interface Gallery in any medium for display in the gallery setting and to propose auxiliary events that intersect with the theme of the exhibition. This can include anything from talks and film screenings to happenings that employ the tactics of art as social practice. A central gallery installation will include a display of produce that has been recovered from dumpsters or other sources and will be offered to visitors of the exhibition.
Deadline: July 29, 2012
