A year-long investigation into food, art, culture & politics.
Fusing the richness of LACMA‘s permanent collection with the ephemerality of food and the natural growth cycle, EATLACMA’s projects consider food as a common ground that explores the social role of art and ritual in community and human relationships. EATLACMA unfolds seasonally, with artist’s gardens planted and harvested on the museum campus, hands-on public events, and a concurrent exhibition, Fallen Fruit Presents EATLACMA (June 27-November 7, 2010). It culminates in a day-long event (November 7, 2010) in which over fifty artists and collectives will activate, intervene, and re-imagine the entire museum’s campus and galleries. EATLACMA is curated by Fallen Fruit—David Burns, Matias Viegener and Austin Young—and LACMA curators Michele Urton and Jose Luis Blondet.
EATLACMA was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made possible by a Museum and Community Connections Grant from .
Additional support was provided by the Ralph M. Parsons Fund and Paramount Citrus.
