Feast & Famine explores food as a social, political, and bodily phenomenon. The exhibition considers food as a commodity; the relationship between food, death, sex, and the abject; food’s relationship to global economics and geo-politics; food and its likeness as a medium for artistic experimentation; the food chain and the environmental impacts of food production; and food justice. Feast & Famine gathers together works in a variety of media from artists and artist collectives working nationally and internationally, at different stages in their career.

Stitches of Strength

Window Gallery, Express Newark
In collaboration with the Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance
Curated by Christie Howley

Opening reception: March 28, 6-8pm | RSVP on Facebook

The squares that constitute this quilt were part of the Clothesline Project on the Rutgers University – Newark campus. The colorful t-shirt material and denim squares represent sexual violence and intimate partner violence in various forms. This quilt is upheld, both literally and figuratively, by stiches of strength. Its stitching binds together the patches which represent the stories, experiences, and messages of trauma, grief, hope, and love. Just as fabric and thread uphold the quilt, it is the support and encouragement of our allies and fellow survivors that provide the strength to continue the fight against violence and to find paths to healing.

This project is funded through the Victims of Crime Act grant provided through the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office and made possible through the support of the Center on Violence Against Women and Children and the School of Social Work.We would also like to thank the RU-N Division of Student Affairs and the many offices, students and staff members who shared their experiences and support with us in the creation of this quilt.
