CALL for ENTRIES: Fight or Flight

2017 March 3

Learn more about the Fight or Flight exhibit from The Painting Center!FOOD anyone?

I received more “why food?” inquiries this week.  Because.  That’s the short answer.  Specifically I had someone to challenge the relevancy of a food theme with all that is going on politically in the U.S.  Long Answer, well, food IS political, and global. (Reminder, the world is larger than the U.S.)  Regulations governing food safety couldn’t be more political. Quinoa and milk and coffee and avocados, political. Choosing the source of your food and having confidence the quality of your options is all about politics and privilege.  I love food.  AAAD will continue to celebrate food.  We all grow and buy and cook and serve in reaction to our experiences of the world around us.  We act and react, indulge and temper, daily.  This next Call wants your reaction to current events.  Take a look…

“Looking back to specific artists’ reactions to unsettled times, there are Picasso’s Guernica & Gerhard Richter’s cycle of paintings October 18, 1977. On the other hand, Matisse created his joyful collaged paper cutouts for his Jazz series during World War II in France, and Jackson Pollock’s poured paintings were created in the 1950s during the McCarthy era. Creativity can feed off the inspiration of current events and/or a personal vision. We are looking for artists’ responses to these times in which we live, in 2017.” –thepaintingcenter.org
