Food Water Life | Tufts University Gallery

06 septembre 2012 - 16 décembre 2012
Tufts University Art Gallery, Solo exhibition

On September 6, 2012 University Art Gallery inaugurates the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of Lucy + Jorge Orta available to American museums. This exhibition will explore how the artists' unique visual language tackles the global issues affecting our lives. Three projects – Food Water Life - spanning close to two decades of collaborative work, will be presented: Hortirecyling (1997-2005), OrtaWater (2005-2007) and Antarctica (1990-2009).

Lucy + Jorge Orta’s artwork communicates widely to audiences beyond the field of contemporary art, demonstrating the importance of art as a creative agent for awareness and change. During the next three years, the artists will stage on-location workshops, ephemeral interventions, residencies and master classes that explore the crucial themes of the contemporary world: the community, autonomy, dwelling, migration, sustainable development and recycling.

This exhibition will tour to Zikha Gallery, Wesleyan University (January 22–March 3, 2013), Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University (January 25–May 25, 2014) and Richard E. Peeler Art Center, DePauw University, Greencastle (February 5–May 7, 2015) with other venues to be announced.
