What on Earth are we Eating? curated by Ebony Secombe, is an exhibition that provides a platform

for discourse pertaining to, and around, the relationships we have with food. The ways in which we relate to

what we eat, what others eat, how we eat and who we eat with expose some of the inner most layers of the

human condition.

 

11 contemporary artists have made work for this exhibition, including drawings, paintings, video art,

photography, performance art and sculpture.

 

Notions and issues of health, mass (over or under) consumption, biotechnologies & genetical engineering,

sustainability and environmental/ecological concerns, as well as examining how food is used as a vessel for

human interaction in contemporary society, are just some of the topics that are up for discussion in this exhibition.

 

As part of this exhibition ATVP is hosting a series of intimate dinner parties (What on Earth are we eating

tonight?). Each dinner party will host 8 guests, who will contribute $10 to the evening, and the selected chefs

for each evening will create a 3-course meal with a budget of $80. Each dinner party will be documented

where cooks and guests will be given the opportunity to discuss the exhibition, artworks and its themes in a

friendly conversational environment. To book your spot at a dinner party contact ATVP via email at

info@atthevanishingpoint.com.au

 

Join us at the opening launch of What on Earth are we eating?, Thursday 9 May 6-9pm

and at an Artist Talks session, Saturday 18 May 2-4pm.
