Assembly Is Required, MANIFESTO: Food
AIR, Assembly Is Required, functions as a collaborative pop-up event. These participatory art exhibitions connect artists with the community through the process of shared art making. A.I.R. events invite the participants into artist studios, galleries, and community settings and rely on artist and guest interactions to assemble a temporary installation that evolves over time at each site.
In this iteration of A.I.R. at 621 Gallery, I worked solo to create a project that focused on food justice and more specifically urban farming. This multi-media installation provided information and gardening tools to the viewer as an entry point into issues that food producers currently face.
The viewers are encouraged to make and take a free informational zine, plant seeds on the installation and return for the exhibition's close to share what has been grown...community!
