Project Launch: Mini-book folios, Tastings, and Food Demonstrations
The Survival Project is an exploration of food and resilience during extreme times. Delving into culinary traditions that sustained individuals through war and migration, this launch features a series of limited-run, mini-book folios and special food demonstrations that highlight resourceful preparations of local ingredients such as rice, cassava, pine, and dandelion.
Food traditions are vital to culture and community. Drawing from oral histories, including the experiences of their own families, the artists share recipes and techniques for coping with a range of crises. The Survival Project places the fundamental quest for nourishment within a larger historical context, showing the depth and capacity of human resilience.
The Survival Project launch will include food demonstrations and tastings. A limited number of the mini-book folios will be available for purchase.
