SDSU Downtown Gallery
A Thousand Plates
A juried art and design exhibition of SDSU student and faculty works dealing with food as subject. A Thousand Plates explores the topic of food as a means to question society by examining traditions across cultures and throughout the centuries.
The exhibition will examine food as a fundamental need, modern food production and its relationship to the environment, the culture of eating, and its relationship to memory. The exhibition title refers to Deleuze and Guattari’s “A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia" -- a philosophical text written with a rhizomatic structure -- where connections between ideas and references defy linear, structural, or casual relations.
Runs February 19 through March 26.
The SDSU Downtown Gallery is a program of the School of Art, Design and Art History, which in turn is a unit of the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts of San Diego State University.
The Downtown Gallery is one of two galleries affiliated with the School of Art, Design, and Art History. For more than 30 years, the University Art Gallery — located on the SDSU campus — has received critical acclaim for its outstanding exhibition programming and curatorial vision.
The SDSU Downtown Gallery continues this focus on programmatic excellence while also providing a vital link between the School of Art and the San Diego community.
