Artists Laurie Beth Clark and Michael Peterson, of Madison-based arts group Spatula & Barcode, join 8 O’Clock Buzz host Brian Standing in the studio to tell us more about their project.
The group are current artists-in-residence at Madison Central Library’s hands on project space, the Bubbler, where they’ve opened an interactive Community Research Kitchen as part of their Foodways project. In October, the group will conduct multiple activities and conversations in the research kitchen open to the public.
From The Madison Public Library “Madison Bubbler” website:
Artists Laurie Beth Clark and Michael Peterson, along with an evolving team of collaborators, will be in residency at The Bubbler in September and October 2016 as part of their year-long project Foodways Madison, which is focused on building community understanding of food systems of all kinds, from food production to waste disposal, but also including our individual/family “food systems” –how we “do” food. The overall Foodways project includes partnerships with farmers, artists, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art Triennial, and many units of the University of Wisconsin.
Come see them at the Food Systems Community Research Kitchen in The Bubbler to share your insights about food systems and to explore with us how systems big and small shape our food cultures. Spatula&Barcode will host open office kitchen hours each Saturday & Sunday in September & October from 1-5pm in the Bubbler. With more events peppered in the afternoons and evenings in October (specific dates TBD).
