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? features the work of seven women artists who challenge us to rethink our relationship to food production within the context of climate change. Incorporating video, performance, sculpture, community events, and print media, their work critiques our relationships to flora and fauna as we experience a rapidly evolving ecosystem. Gestures of intervention and collaboration enact themes of resilience and survival. These artists’ imaginative proposals position art as an instrument for social change.

Artists address imminent ecological crisis by responding with personal engagement, embodied responsibility, and a call to action. Apocalypse Diet includes the work of Jane Adams, Suzanne Anker, Andrea Haenggi, Ellie Irons, Anne Percoco, Li Sumpter and Candace Thompson.

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.
