Press release


Guest curated by Sue Spaid and opening September 22, 2012, Green Acres: Artists Farming Fields, Greenhouses and Abandoned Lots addresses farming as both activism and art form. Featuring a real working farm within the gallery, a farm stand in the museum lobby, sculptures used for farming, videos and other installations, as well as multiple satellite projects in the community, Green Acres presents farming as art through a wide variety of approaches. Raphaela Platow, the CAC's Alice & Harris Weston Director and Chief Curator explains, "Green Acres builds on eco-conscious exhibitions the Contemporary Arts Center has spearheaded in the past, including The American Lawn: Surface of Everyday Life, Ecovention and Beyond Green, and puts into context the nearly 40 year phenomena of farming as art. Yet it highlights the fact that the field has experienced a recent surge, evidenced by the vast amount of works in Green Acres that have been completed in the past five years." Green Acres is on view through January 20, 2013.

The show is presented in five sections:


Green Acres curator Sue Spaid notes "Though the exhibition is presented in sections, "community" and "freedom" are themes running throughout the show. The impressive roster of international artists in this exhibition are known for addressing community-specific issues in their work, and a key component to the exhibition will be the satellite projects throughout the community. Freedom pertains to the choices citizens make as well as the artists' capacity to act, achieve their goals and involve others in their vision."
