Bring your unwanted plastic bags to the gallery and exchange them for a tote bag to shop at the Market.Offer valid while supplies last.
Six socially conscious artists are invited to engage vendors, customers and the Market itself in their artistic processes as a means of co-generating experiences centered on the life that unfolds outside Cuchifritos Gallery, the art space of the Artist Alliance Inc. The participating artists and their collaborators bring to the forefront issues relevant to their respective trades and roles, while paying attention to the narratives as well as to the material culture that their presence in the place spawns as a result of their encounters.
Each of the foods listed in the title of this exhibition links an item sold by the merchants with the first letter of the name of the contributing artists and of the curator: Lettuce-Laia, Artichokes-Antonia, Red Beets-Ricardo, Mangoes- Mary, Broccoli-Beatrice, Honey-Harley, and Nutmeg-Nicolás.
