Friday Lunch: Artist as Farmer/Farmer as Artist
Fri 30 Aug, 1-2pm, Brander Kitchen
with Elisabetta Rattalino
What is it that makes farming a practice that finds place in art galleries? By looking at examples from the past six decades, Elisabetta will propose an understanding of artists’ proliferating interest in cultivating the land. Taking care of the environment in which we dwell appears a primary concern, but there also are other reasons why art practitioners have been increasingly engaging with rural contexts. The talk will try to unpack several of the issues at stake.
