For Us By Us is a cross-disciplinary exhibition featuring the works of emerging artists and designers, exploring ideas of decolonial and alternative futures through food. Each artist and designer examines strategies for communal empowerment while engaging with the conditions within which food is grown, produced, consumed and shared. Looking at their ancestral knowledge, positionality and geographical context, the selected practitioners propose to reconsider and deepen our (the viewers) relationship with consumed goods. More specifically, in the context of this exhibition, food becomes an access point to reimagine settler and Indigenous relationships, food as medicine, embodied decolonial practices, emancipation and equitable food systems.  

This exhibition is produced with the support of the City of  Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council.

We’re thrilled to be presenting For Us By Us at the Toronto Design Offsite Festival http://todesignoffsite.comrunning Jan 15-21, 2018! #TODO18
