Call for proposals: What on Earth are we Eating?
ATVP is currently Calling for Proposals for…
What on Earth are we Eating?
a group exhibition about food
9 – 19 May 2013
Opening launch Thursday 9 May 6-9pm
Artist talks Saturday 11 May 2-4pm
What are we eating tonight? Dinner Parties
(Sat 11, Tues 14, Thur 16 & Sat 18 May from 7pm)
What on Earth are we Eating? Curated by Ebony Secombe & ATVPs Co-Director team * is an exhibition that provides a platform for discourse pertaining to, and around, the relationships we have with food. The ways in which we relate to what we eat, what others eat, how we eat and who we eat with expose some of the inner most layers of the human condition.
Notions and issues of health, mass (over or under) consumption, biotechnologies & genetical engineering, sustainability and environmental/ecological concerns, as well as examining how food is used as a vessel for human interaction in contemporary society, are just some of the topics that one could choose as an avenue for inquiry.
Why do we eat together (or alone)? What does it mean to be a consious (slow food) eater? What drives our eating habits? How does what we eat or don’t eat effect our bodies? How do our choices around food effect our environment? These are some of the questions that this exhibition is seeking to present a platform for discussion and interaction.
As part of this exhibition ATVP will host a series of intimate dinner parties (What on Earth are we eating tonight?). Members of the community (individuals or groups), exhibiting artists and our audience are invited to propose themed evenings/menus for the program by volunteering an evening to cook a meal for 8 guests. Each dinner guest will contribute $10 to the evening, and the selected chefs for each evening will create a 3-course meal with a budget of $80. Each dinner party will be documented where cooks and guests will be given the opportunity to discuss the exhibition, artworks and its themes in a friendly conversational environment.
Proposals for artworks, performances and happenings are open to artists, working in any mediums, including edible art.
Propose up to 5 artworks per artist. An exhibition fee of $100 per artist will apply to each artist selected.
The Young Ones. An exhibition of Illustrations
