Assembly is Required: Mobile Micro-Greenhouse
The Mobile Micro Greenhouse, was exhibited at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Lafayette, Louisiana, as part of a group exhibition titled, ART I-10. Curated by Brian Guidry and Mary Beyt. This video installation used plants and the landscape as a platform to examine not only sustainable food practices and DIY urban farming, but also sustainability in relation to migration. Viewers were encouraged to plant seeds and transplant plant seedlings during the exhibition. The art center staff and interns worked with visitors to collectively care for the living sculpture.
This exhibition was funded by a National Endowment for the Arts Grant and features work by 11 artists that work along the I-10 corridor spanning from Florida to California including, Brandon Ballengee, Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola, Wes Kline and others. The show’s theme explores identity, a sense of place, and a glance at our global future.
The AcA exhibition was included in P.S. Satellites – a Project of Prospect New Orleans for Prospect.4: The Lotus in Spite of the Swamp.
