Updated Call to Artists

APOCALYPSE FOOD is looking for food items and contraptions. These entries can be functional and edible but do not have to be.

For this Exhibition we are looking for food items that discuss the possibilities of sustainability and shelf life while being creative with elements of design and structure. Contributors should have a curiosity in the manufacturing of food. We will accept any medium but encourage artists to work with food or closely related substances. After the show is taken down, these food items will be placed in a locked time chest for 20 years at the University of West Florida Art Department. The time chest will be buried in the ground. After a period of 10 years the food will be exhibited once again.

Most Art Exhibitions might have categories for entry such as sculpture, photography, painting, drawing. To give an idea of categories that might be in this show: well designed cans with odd food items inside, Contraption that somehow benefits mankind with food or liquid, a carefully designed entree, shrinkwrapping, pickeling, etc.

Please remember if possible a duplicate of your entry would be wonderful. One for showing opened at the exhibition and one for the time capsule. If possible include a shelf life with your entry. Entries do not have to functional or edible but indication as to whether they are would be nice.

Curator: Independent Curator.
