Edible Farming Practices in Art: Thursday Evening Salon Series
Edible Farming Practices in Art
Presented by Nicole Caruth, Independent Curator and Art Writer
In the last decade artists have increasingly concerned themselves with what and how we eat. They are not just depicting foods but growing edible crops as part of their practice. Artists are responding to the challenges and concerns of feeding people sustainably by creating models that are local, sustainable, and urban. In this presentation, Caruth discusses cultivation as contemporary art.
