HOW FOOD MOVES: EDIBLE LOGISTICS
Rowan University Art Gallery
March 27 – May 27, 2017
301 High Street West
Professor Stephanie Rothenberg exhibits the interactive garden “Garden of Virtual Kinship” in “How Food Moves: Edible Logistics.”
In How Food Moves, artists explore how food transits through complex patterns of distribution in between the point of origin (the farm) and its point of consumption (the plate). Increasingly, contemporary artists are creatively grappling with the complexity of food’s trajectory in this regard through research-based and participatory practices. Mr. Tucker, Graduate Program Director in Social and Studio Practices at Moore College of Art and Design, has brought together 10 multidisciplinary artists projects that grapple creatively with the complexity of food’s trajectory using research-based and participatory practices, community actions, video and photo documentations, interactive objects, digital technologies, and newly-commissioned pieces by artists who focus their inquiry from the regional context of Philadelphia and southern New Jersey.
