Lexington Art League: Food/Eating Exhibition

Deadline: April 8, 2015 {POSTMARK} or {EMAIL}

Food/Eating Exhibition
Lexington Art League

Lexington, Kentucky
May 22-August 9, 2015

The Lexington Art League (LAL), a contemporary visual art center in Lexington, Kentucky, is seeking artwork submissions and project proposals that in some way address food and/or eating. We eat for a variety of reasons: pleasure, hunger, comfort, social ritual. Various food industry issues, from sustainable agriculture and organic farming to GMO’s and government nutrition regulation, have brought about political, ethical, and social debate. At the same time, hunger and obesity battle as epidemics in different parts of the world, serving to amplify the effect of global wealth inequality.

This exhibition aims to explore complex issues related to food and eating through social, emotional, ethical, religious, political, health, and other perspectives. Artists are encouraged to creatively interpret the theme and submit for consideration any work they think might be of interest.
