Lunch Swap brought together 14 Bay Area artists who use the medium of food. Each artist was asked to make a meal for another artist using basic guidelines for meal preparation. Many of the artists treated their meal as a reflection of their art practice and background. At the time of the meal conversation revolved around personal and shared experiences of food, community, family and food politics.
NODE, Network of Daily Experience, is a collaboration between the artist team Emily Dippo and Kim Cook who seek to create spaces for dialogue and exchange of ideas highlighting the relationship between art and the everyday.
The team works with various modes of research such as oral history, storytelling, investigative workshops and walks at multiple sites in each community
