Green Acres: Artists Farming Fields, Greenhouses and Abandoned Lots
September 22, 2012-January 20, 2013
Curated by Sue Spaid, this exhibition addresses farming as both activism and art form.
The show builds on eco-conscious exhibitions the CAC has spearheaded in the past--including The American Lawn: Surface of Everyday Life, Ecovention and Beyond Green--and puts into context the nearly 40 year phenomena of farming as art. Featuring a real working farm within the gallery, a farm stand in the museum lobby, sculptures used for farming, videos and other installations, Green Acres presents farming as art through a wide variety of approaches. Another key component to the exhibition will be the satellite projects throughout the community.
Artists include: Kim Abeles, Agnes Denes, Dan Devine, Field Faring, Futurefarmers, Anya Gallaccio, Avital Geva, Lonnie Graham, Harrison Studio, Mei Ling Hom, Homeadow Song, Patricia Johanson, Sakarin Krue-On, J. J. McCracken, Matthew Moore, N55, Permaganic Eco Garden, Mara Adamitz Scrupe, Bonnie Ora Sherk, Åsa Sonjasdotter, Susan Leibovitz Steinman, Tattfoo Tan, Shannon Young
