Food holds the history of our struggles and resilience. But what is the potential of food as an art making material? This course connects the intersections of food, form, and political action. Through readings by interdisciplinary scholars and hands-on action including Feed the Hungry, urban farming, and cooking, we will use food as a lens to decolonize constructions of race, class, and gender. We will also learn about the history of why and how food has been traditionally excluded from the realm of fine art. Coursework includes material investigations, the making of images and objects, creative writing, readings, critiques, and visiting artists. The course will culminate in a final project that connects the coursework with each student's creative practice.
