NAPA, Calif. (AP) -- "Active Ingredients" is the inaugural contemporary art exhibition planned for Copia: The American Center for Wine, Food & the Arts.
The sculptures and installations by seven artists address the varying rituals of food preparation and consumption in cultures around the globe.
Food procurement and consumption has been a subject in art throughout history. For example, landscapes with agricultural workers and food still-lives can be documented in nearly every culture.
And contemporary pop artists use food as a material to explore the "everydayness" of life in art, explains COPIA in a statement.
Artists participating in "Active Ingredients" include The Art Guys, Lee Mingwei, Miralda, Lucy Orta, Gay Outlaw, Jorge Pardo and Andrea Zittel.
Their work will be displayed from Nov. 18, 2001, through Apr. 22, 2002.
