The New Agronomists
Michael Mercil, Arzu Ozkal, Sara Rabinowitz, Nanette Yannuzzi, Amy Youngs
May 13 - July 10, 2011
This exhibition will address themes of the production of food and goods through farming, either on a small, personal scale or the scale of large agri-business. The cotton in our t-shirts, the salad on our plates, the corn-syrup in ourů everything were originally produced in gardens and on farms. Yet the rustic, romantic view of the lone farmer is a far cry from the reality behind the economic, genetic, environmental and political concerns that orbit usable-plant growth in our country. Artists and farmers will address these issues that affect us each greatly, but often invisibly.
Amy Youngs' residency is made possible in part through support from the National Performance Network's Visual Artists Network. Major contributors are the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
