Artist Talk: Uli Westphal at MING Studios

Artist Talk: Uli Westphal at MING Studios

Art Talk
From crop production to supermarket psychology, the work of German artist Uli Westphal challenges the workings of the food industries. Westphal’s interest lie in the misconceptions and ideologies that manipulate our perspectives on nature and consumption. MING Studios opened in 2013, with a solo exhibition by Westphal, entitled Cornucopia. Since his exhibition in Boise he has traveled to and exhibited in over 11 countries worldwide including: South Korea where he worked with local farmers, Cuba where he went fishing on a makeshift raft made of Styrofoam, Brazil where he met with a local chef who only cooks with native species of the Amazon, and Czech Republic where he collaborated with the food waste activists group Zachran jídlo. Currently, Westphal is showing a retrospective exhibition of over 100 works at the Museum der Brotkultur in Ulm, Southern Germany. Friday, April 7th, Uli Westphal will to return to MING Studios to talk about previous and recent works, and share some of his experiences from working out in the field.
