Plenty

7 Dec - 9 Feb
@ ACE Open
Plenty

What is enough? How do we know when we have plenty?

From contemporary Kaurna cuisine through to Supermarket Giant tomatoes, desalination, chemical impacts and migrant labour, eight local and interstate artists investigate what’s on our plate in Plenty.

Through installation, video, performance, recipes, walks and talks, this series of newly-commissioned work looks beyond mere gastronomy to the world of globalised food production. Emerging from each artist’s research-based practice is a series of ideas and prototypes that propose individual and collective action, in the Adelaide region and beyond.

As an exhibition that spans a summer in the driest state on the driest inhabited continent on earth, Plenty urgently maps and challenges the production, consumption, sustainability and security of our food.

Featuring Sasha Grbich and Kelly Reynolds (SA), Jamie Lewis (VIC), James Nguyen and Cong Ai Nguyen (NSW/SA), Keg de Souza with Lucien Alperstein (NSW/SA), and James Tylor (SA). Curated by Toby Chapman.
