Blood Catalogue: Words Of Bloody Wisdom

Hungry for Art and Social Practice: creative strategies examining the politics and performance of Melbourne food culture

Friday 8 July, 1:30- 3pm, Arts Hall, University of Melbourne

A PSi 2016 Performing Climates Curated Panel

Melbourne is not simply the city for Foodies but has also become a site of everyday art intervention exploring changing food culture in the contexts of climate change and mass migration. Within this burgeoning field, social practice artists and arts producers are using a range of affective, political, artistic and discursive strategies to engage the public, industry and consumers. Performatively staged as a live dinner party, this delicious discussion is hosted by Marnie Badham and Robert Walton examining the creative engagement strategies of three artistic projects regarding food in Melbourne. After presenting media-rich content to illustrate each project, dinner guests will discuss this burgeoning field in the context of new forms of contemporary art and social practice.

Distinguished Panel

Professor Laurie Beth Clark and Associate Professor Michael Peterson, Department of Art, University of Wisconsin discussing Foodways Melbourne.

ART–FOOD–POLITICS 

The subject of what we put in our mouths – the foods, drinks, health supplements and guilty pleasures – is the famed obsession of the city of Melbourne. We are more sensitive than ever to origins and impact of our food, and aware of our small part in a bigger system of food production within a finite ecosystem. Our food choices have aesthetic, environmental, social and ultimately political repercussions – and artists around the world increasingly draw upon this rich intersection in their work.

Moving beyond dry and often hard to swallow knowledge, this event invites you to play with your food and savour new flavours of thought.

Presenters and discussants for the evening include VCA Artists in Residence Spatula&Barcode (Profs Laurie Beth Clarke and Michael Peterson, University of Wisconsin), Dawn Weleski (artist and Co-Director of Conflict Kitchen USA) and Dr Jen Rae (CCP, Refuge Project).

This event is curated and hosted by Marnie Badham, Centre for Cultural Partnerships (CCP) and Robert Walton, VCA Theatre.

When: 6–8pm Thursday 14 April 2016

Where: Founders Gallery, VCA, 234 St Kilda Rd, Southbank

Prototype Performance – Performing Mobilities – Between RMIT and North Melbourne

Throughout 2015 Robert Walton and Jason Maling are developing a responsive time-based narrative experience that moves across media, bodies and technologies, between public and private spaces. Dark Telephony is controlled by call-centre technology and will be mediated by an interactive telephone system via individual mobile devices, social media and its human avatars. In this iteration the Dark Telephony system will manifest a live performance for a small group of participants. Part call-centre horror story, part spectral encounter with oneself, the work exploits the uneasy relationship we have with automated disembodied telephone systems. It plays on that vague sense that our mundane communications are not all they seem and an all-pervasive and non-locatable ‘other’ might actually be tracking and directing our movements. Participants will literary ring in to be wrung out.
