Join us for a conversation about food, broadcasting, and socially engaged action in contemporary art!
Do you want to know more about our current exhibition, Working Alternatives: Breaking Bread, Art Broadcasting, and Collective Action? We invite you to meander through the galleries with the Franklin Street Works team this Thursday, November 29, from 6-7 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
We welcome your company and conversation so please feel free to drop by early to enjoy a beer and peruse art books in the cafe or give the exhibition’s videos and artist collective archive some extra viewing time before the tour begins.
Franklin Street Works Creative Director, Terri C Smith, and Gallery Manager, Sandrine Milet, will lead a casual tour of and conversation about the exhibition, which was co-curated by Mackenzie Schneider, Jess Wilcox, and Terri C Smith.
Most of the artists in the show have exhibited internationally, including historic figures — such as a pioneer in creating public access art programming and a founding member of the 1960s art movement of Fluxus — and emerging artists who use food, video, and action to shift our thinking about everything from performance art to women’s health issues, to food as a medium in exploring memorial and democracy.
Artists: Paul Branca, Jaime Davidovich, ESP TV, Group Material,Ann Hirsch, Alison Knowles, Tom Marioni, Anna Ostoya, Legacy Russell, Chris Sollars and Jerome Waag. Artist collectives involved will constantly evolve and grow, they include: Conflict Kitchen, Fierce Pussy, Howling Mob Society, JustSeeds, M12 Studios, Paper Tiger, Philly Stake, The Pinky Show, Second Front, SubRosa, Temporary Services, and W.A.G.E.
