Katonah Museum of Art “Cladogram” Juried Exhibition for Poets, Authors, Visual, Sound, Book, Craft Artists DEADLINE April 2 ~Katonah, NY~

The Katonah Museum of Art invites submissions for Cladogram: 2nd KMA International Juried Biennial, July 11 to September 19, 2021. The exhibition, juried by Yasmeen Siddiqui, will bring together visual artists, sound artists, book artists, craft-based artists, poets and authors whose work explores connections between past and present. This includes, but is not limited to, work that:

Engages with personal or family history
Examines the idea and form of the archive, or the ways in which historical objects and ideas are organized, categorized and displayed
Borrows from the history of art
Challenges the dominant narrative of (art) history and questions what and who that history includes and excludes
With Cladogram: 2nd KMA International Juried Biennial, the KMA seeks to present a broad range of contemporary work created by artists based locally, regionally and globally. In doing so, the museum hopes to build networks of artists around the world. Awards will be granted for the top three submissions.

The exhibition will be juried by Yasmeen Siddiqui, author and founding director of Minerva Projects, whose objective is to support interdisciplinary artists who have expressed the desire to analyze their practice, and where curatorial ideas are tested in service to publishing books.

This disease has only been discovered in recent years and much about it, including the full cause and how it spreads, is still unknown.

resourcED is a program to strengthen local food systems FOOD BOX pickup locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan & Tarrytown, New York

What would it look like if out-of-work cooks around the world dug in and built a garden?

Two months ago, three cooks from Blue Hill at Stone Barns—Pruitt Kerdchoochuen, Bronson Petti and Chuan-Chieh Chang—did just that. They started three kitchen gardens by ripping up three lawns. Stone Barns farm director, Jack Algiere, guided them by speaking their language: he created a step-by-step recipe, from sod-busting to seed selection.

They shared the recipe with cook friends, who shared it with cook friends, and suddenly it snowballed—now thousands of line cooks from across the world are following along and cultivating their own kitchen gardens: from the Philippines to Egypt, Colombia to Canada, and New Zealand to Norway.

So we’ve put a name to this. The Kitchen Farming Project will follow Pruitt, Bronson and Chuan, the out-of-work Blue Hill chefs—and everyone else around the world who digs in with us—as they confront the challenges and experience the pleasures of growing their own food.

And we’re betting that the journey—from seed to plate—will tell the story of a new food future.

What if a generation of cooks and eaters emerge from isolation never looking at an ingredient list—or a farmer—in the same way again? What if we redefined our role in the food system, not as end users, but as engaged participants from farm to table.

What if you joined them?

We are asking you—cooks, bartenders, bakers, butchers, and anyone who loves to eat—to join us. Let’s dig in and write the recipe for the future of food. Real revolutions begin in the soil.

To book a resourcED pickup please select your location:

  • Tarrytown
  • Manhattan
  • Brooklyn
