“Art/Tech/Food: Cultural Collaboration”
Art/Tech/Food, is Amanda McDonald Crowley’s curatorial research strategy bringing biologists, environmentalists, food activists, and molecular gastronomists, together with artists to deliver urban agricultural strategies, bio-generative art, and open source software and hardware. McDonald Crowley’s intention is to deliver new research with the goal of curating an interdisciplinary program that might include exhibitions, symposia, and associated publication(s).
McDonald Crowley is interested in developing a programming series that undertakes a critique of the commercialization of food production, focusing on discussions of food policy, food justice, and broader cultural contexts of food production. She is collating research resources on Scoop.it/ArtTechFood.
