Social Ingredients, curated by Rebecca Lu (MFA Curatorial Practice '18) explores the significance of meal production and consumption as both a social component of everyday life and a meaningful art practice through sculpture, installation, video, performance, and public programs. Featuring artists Nobutaka Aozaki, Christine Ferrera, Rosemary Liss, Christine Stiver and Tracie Jiggetts, and Tattfoo Tan, Social Ingredients provides an artistic viewpoint on the preparation, hosting and consumption of food, examining how people’s relationships with others are influenced by the meals they eat together, while creating a platform for diverse audiences to connect their everyday life with art.

Art of the ancient Americas at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore - Internship!
Duties this summer may include:
--Resarching and cataloguing objects in the collection (you can see examples at art.thewalters.org) in preparation for an exhibition of ancient American art to be installed in October 2018, and for a broader re-installation in 2019
--Working on a symposium scheduled for December regarding the installation and display of pre-Columbian art, from the late 19th through early 21st centuries in the United States
--Outreach to the Creative Alliance to gather feedback on what kinds of programming people would like to see at the Walters.
--So, you'll get research, administrative, and public speaking experience, something to put on your resume, and likely a warm recommendation letter from me.
Because of the nature of the material, I am seeking someone who is at least proficient in written Spanish (to read sources), but if you have any interested members who speak an indigenous language of the Americas, that would be amazing.
The application is due April 21 and full information can be found here: https://thewalters.org/about/jobs/intern/ If people have questions, please have them email or call me.
