If you’re in the Cincinnati area make sure to check out the Green Acres Exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center opening 9/22. Curated by Sue Spaid, this exhibition addresses farming as both activism and art form.
The show builds on eco-conscious exhibitions the CAC has spearheaded in the past—including The American Lawn: Surface of Everyday Life, Ecovention and Beyond Green—and puts into context the nearly 40 year phenomena of farming as art. Featuring a real working farm within the gallery, a farm stand in the museum lobby, sculptures used for farming, videos and other installations, Green Acres presents farming as art through a wide variety of approaches. Another key component to the exhibition will be the satellite projects throughout the community.
“The three-man team at Such + Such is all about keeping it real. From start to finish, it handles the production process for Block Clocks under its own Cincinnati roof, using only locally found hardwoods. Sculpturally striking, these carved walnut and maple clocks feature a natural grain with a preternatural presence.”
