Apocalypse Diet: What Will We Eat?

February 21, 2020 - June 7, 2020

Guest curated by interdisciplinary artist Stella Marrs, Apocalypse Diet: What Will We Eat? investigates food systems—the processes and infrastructure required to feed a population—in light of imminent ecological crisis. Featured artists include Jane Adams, Suzanne Anker, Andrea Haenggi, Ellie Irons and Anne Percoco, Li Sumpter, and Candace Thompson who work in a range of media including installation, performance, video, participatory social events, and interventions. Apocalypse Diet seeks to reveal the critical importance of rethinking our relationship to food production and food culture as we navigate an uncertain future.

The Artist’s Artists series offers insights into contemporary art and artists by inviting Vermont artists to guest curate intriguing and challenging work that has influenced their creative practice. BCA Exhibitions are funded in part by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual ArtsNational Endowment for the Arts, and Vermont Arts Council.
