Feast & Famine

Mar 28, 2019 - Dec 14, 2019
Main Gallery, Express Newark
Opening reception: March 28th, 6-8 p.m.

Feast & Famine explores food as a social, political, and bodily phenomenon. The exhibitions considers food as a commodity; the relationship between food, death, sex, and the abject; food’s relationship to global economics and geo-politics; food and its likeness as a medium for artistic experimentation; the food chain and the environmental impacts of food production; and food justice. Feast & Famine gathers together works in a variety of media from artists and artist collectives working nationally and internationally, at different stages in their career.

NIAD show

Wild Color: Mary Mortimer

Oakland-based artist Mary Mortimer started out as a painter. Inspired by mentors Amos Kennedy and Alan Kitching, she’s been able to explore painting using type and ink. Every print of Mortimer’s is an artist’s proof, hand-inked and unique within the edition. Some are even printed over recycled prints. All of the type she uses is antique wood or metal and all prints are made using vintage presses in a variety of shops. NIAD is honored and delighted to be showing more than a dozen recent works from Mortimer.
