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.
