From March 27 to May 27, 2017, the Rowan University Art Gallery hosts 'How Food Moves: Edible Logistics' through the work of guest curator Daniel Tucker. As contemporary artists grappling with the complexity of food's trajectory through research-based and participatory practices, this exhibition aims to highlight a range of these works, as well as present newly-commissioned projects by artists working in the surrounding areas who can explore this inquiry from the regional contexts of Philadelphia and southern New Jersey. Tucker explores how food transits through complex patterns of distribution in between the point of origin ('the farm') and its point of consumption ('the plate'). An opening reception and gallery talk is set for Thursday, March 30 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
