Call For Artists: Serving Healthful Art

Call For Artists: Serving Healthful Art

The Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance (NoMAA), in collaboration with NY-Presbyterian – The Allen Hospital and Art in Flux, is seeking submissions for NoMAA’s next exhibition entitled Serving Healthful Art – Guest curated by Henone Girma (Art in Flux).

Artists can use their art as a catalyst to present new ideas. Serving Healthful Art is an open call to artists to submit works that confront the existing ways society is feeding itself and that convey what it means to nourish our bodies healthfully and with the earth’s ecosystem in mind.

Society is faced with endless food-related issues and the politics of food affects everyone who eats. Accordingly, artists hold a stake in discourses that take place around food and nutrition. In fact, they hold the ability to tap into the emotional core of such complicated concepts that entice both personal and political debates and are among those who are challenging the status quo. From food industry lobbying, marketing practices, agricultural innovations (both positive and negative), to FDA regulations and government policies there is a wide array of forces that affect what we eat and where it comes from. Food politics have a significant effect on all of our minds, bodies and souls.
