Transformer’s FRAMEWORK Panel #16: Perspectives on Food and Culture (see facebook invite) puts a spotlight on the relationship that we have with food -- looking at how food shapes our sense of social responsibility and personal identity, and examining its effects on art, culture, and health.
Moderated by artist Carolina Mayorga, guest curator of Transformer’s current Bread & Butter exhibition, panelists sharing their insights include: Chanan Delivuk (Artist),Nicolas Jammet (Co-Founder, sweetgreen), Laura McGough (Educator, activist, artist), Sara Pomerance (Artist), and Bernie Prince (Co-Founder & Co-Executive Director, FRESHFARM Markets). You can read more about the panelists on the invite here.
- What kinds of individual experiences have triggered the panelists’ interest in the study of food?
- Do the panelists’ local, national or global environments affect their personal or professional practices and how?
- How far away have we as humans moved from the basic, dictionary definition of food? Is food just about providing growth and energy, or is it something more?
