October 6, 2015- April 3, 2016

An exhibition of contemporary art sited throughout The Cathedral of St John the Divine that explores food and its relationship to larger global issues. The Value of Food explores the dynamic and organic materiality of food and its integral role in sustaining life. The artists in the exhbition work with food as a form of social engagement. Although their subjects and methodology vary, they each explore the intersecation of food, art, commerce, the environment and the community in order to engage the exhbition's unifying theme: food justice.
