ART FOOD 2016 +
- Free admission
ART FOOD is an international project integrating a number of domains: design world and the ceramic industry, tertiary education with professional reality, diverse work methods and lived-in experience of numerous cultures. As a result, students gain valuable professional experience that is crucial to a designer’s career, which may later in their life evolve in different directions, not necessarily connected with ceramics. This is the fourth instalment of the ART FOOD project. The aim of the project is to create unique and functional ceramic kitchenware – objects that can be used to showcase culinary art and which, by highlighting the beauty of exceptional dishes, may serve as a canvas for top chefs and cutting-edge food stylists.
This year, 12 students from two tertiary schools (Cracow’s Academy of Fine Arts and New York’s Pratt Institute) participated in the fourth iteration of the project. Under the tutorship of Marek Cecuła, they created their own unique ceramic ware. At the beginning of July, the young designers attended ART FOOD workshops held at Ćmielów Design Studio in the porcelain factory. The results of their work were previewed in the Alchemia Club in Cracow.
In autumn 2016 the designs were shown in the in-house gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow as well as in the David Weeks Studio in Manhattan. ART FOOD 2016+ is shown for the first time ever in the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin and for that reason it has been complemented by exhibits created in the course of previous workshops.
Co-organised by Marek Cecuła’s Modus Design Studio, Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Pratt Institute in New York, Polish Porcelain Factories “Ćmielów” and “Chodzież” JSC, and Ćmielów Design Studio. Sponsored by the Agit Hotel – Congress & SPA, the exhibition is organised in partnership with Lublin Design Institute.
Curators of the Lublin exhibition: Izabela Pastuszko and Paweł Hadrian
