For the full conference schedule, visit 2014 Forum: Art, Food, and Community.
On March 6-8, 2014, artists, professors, curators, directors, chefs, writers, farmers, and foodies presented on a wide range of topics -- Community Supported Art models, land-use art, food-based sculpture, art and food-oriented social engagement, and everything in-between.
Over 250 people attended this three-day event that included six sessions, a performance, and a Charlottesville SOUP dinner at a downtown theater.
Food is something that our world considers necessary for human existence, whereas art is often seen as a luxury. And yet those who work in either of the sectors of food or the arts (whether it be artists and farmers or patrons and chefs) seem to be working along parallel lines to address issues that we face in our modern world. The Forum provided language for the compatibility between these two fields by highlighting overlapping practices of contemporary art and food systems.
