Food Wave. Every food is a landscape
In the framework of the project Food Wave, BJCEM has launched an open call for artists.
The objective of the project is nurturing the relationship between food and landscape in order to define a series of reflections on how the ways of food production and consumption transform the landscapes of the Euro Mediterranean cities as well as Brazil and how, through radical choices or alternatives to the invasive ones of globalized production, individuals and communities can choose to preserve the territory through solidarity and the promotion of sustainable food systems. The core of the project is the reflection on food production, on human and natural supply chains that this process sets up.
13 visual artists will be selected to be featured in a group exhibition. Each of them is going to receive € 250 fee. The exhibition will be held in Turin and hosted at BEEOZANAM, a plural space where ideas and communities are produced.
2 visual artists will be selected for a short residency that will end in a public event featuring actions, installations, and temporary happenings in public space. Each of them is going to receive a € 350 research grant.
The Call is open to everybody, regardless of gender, religion, social and political behaviors. There are no submission fees. The call is open only to individual candidatures. The candidature must be submitted in English, that will be the working language.
