Diary of a Space Zucchini: Future Food on Earth and in Orbit

In her presentation Debbora Battaglia, Professor of Anthropology at Mount Holyoke College, will ask: Is aeroponics a solution for nourishing a planet under extreme stress from climate change?

Pioneering Martian Cuisine: Public Talk by Heidi Neilson

  • Cannonball

Over the last year, the Menu for Mars Supper Club met monthly with guest experts over dinners in restaurants in New York City to consider how the circumstances on Mars would affect colonists’ food—and their physical, cultural, and psychological needs. To explore these discussions and plan Mars menus directly, the Menu for Mars Kitchen was established as a temporary experimental test site and stocked with Mars-feasible ingredients—foods which are dried, powdered, thermostabilized, and dehydrated. Heidi Neilson will report on the resulting dishes and other findings generated at the Kitchen, and Mars-feasible snacks will be on hand for tasting.

Public talk by Daniel Joseph Martinez

  • Cannonball

Algorithms learning how to plot our behaviors, drones keeping a close eye on everything, asymmetrical warfare conducted from shipping containers on the Nevada desert, corrupted interfaces generating unexpected new material, global supply chains and automated workspaces, proliferating dreams of melding chemical economies across species, nanotech cellular reparation on the way to eternal living, a mutated Earth system that threatens us with a planet that will turn into a volatile cauldron of chaotic climate, massive geoengineering projects to deflect solar radiation on the horizon, reignited desires to leave the terrestrial platform, black bodies getting blasted everywhere, satnav image literacy as part of kindergarten curricula--what is there for contemporary art to do in a world pressured by all these things?

Actions Between Territories: Public talk by Christopher Cozier

  • Cannonball

Cannonball Artist-in-Residence Christopher Cozier will speak about the potential free/play spaces that Caribbean artists are constantly imagining, constructing, and navigating. As the established idea of the Caribbean—as a viable fiction; as a site of exchanges—is an old, owned product traded between various beneficiaries that predominantly and inherently seek to control and exclude, Caribbean artists generate defiant spaces that fall between categorizations and established properties.

Public talk by Javier Castro

Since 2004, Javier Castro has been training his camera on scenes that take place in marginal areas of Havana as a way to understand the modes of survival and interpersonal relationships that currently organize everyday life. Driven by an anthropological gaze, his work lays bare the negotiation of social contradictions through language, sexuality, informal economics, violence, and improvisation.
