Henry & CaitlinFood Scans

by Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin

Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Levin have been working together since 2004. Their most recent project, Food Scans, is a collection of prints, one for each month of the year. They took produce from the Northeast that was in season that particular month, sliced it, and placed them on a scanner to produce beautiful prints of high quality art.

Six of their prints will be on display around the TimesCenter during the Fest. In addition, up to 10 prints of the 6 Food Scans will be on sale, with 50% of the net proceeds being generously donated to Change Food!

Dissecting the Blossom

by Cherie Sampson

In this screendance work, a 3-beat, or “Tishra Alaripu” is danced throughout the environment of an apple orchard during a springtime bloom, connecting the symbolic essence of the dance with the burgeoning life force of the ephemeral peak days of the orchard bloom.

By A Growing Culture

A Growing Culture is connecting and supporting farmers around the globe, unlocking their potential to ignite an agricultural revolution. As part of our work, we are launching a global campaign that speaks one message clearly: “I stand with the world’s farmers.” The concepts this campaign conveys are intricate and often obscure and hard to swallow. Powerful images translate complex ideas into universal messages, inspire people to organize around revolutionary ideas, and remain in the public consciousness long after written narratives fade away. That’s why we have called on artists to create artwork that will help drive our #IStandWithFarmers campaign and, ultimately, shape a sustainable and just food system.
