SHARING ART is a project based in London run by a collective of artist makers and lovers.
The aim of the project is to explore the domestic environment as a platform for creation of interactive art-oriented events, opening a discussion about the limits between the private and the public and the potential of different spaces as an art-gallery.
In each edition, it presents the work of young artist accompanied by a food experiment produced by selected chefs, and also supports the exchange of talents and knowledge between friends, artists, everyone!

Sharing Art Workshops are editions in which anyone can teach what they know and SHARE WITH THE WORLD.

shared art!

In 1971 Gordon Matta-Clark cofounded Food, in Soho, NY, with Carol Goodden, a restaurant managed and staffed by artists. The restaurant turned dining into an event with an open kitchen and exotic ingredients that celebrated cooking. The activities at Food helped delineate how the art community defined itself in downtown Manhattan.The first of its kind in SoHo, Food became well known among artists and was a central meeting-place for groups such as the Philip Glass EnsembleMabou Mines, and the dancers of Grand Union. He ran Food until 1973.

Artists were also invited weekly to serve as guest chefs, and the whole dinner was considered a performance art piece. One of the most fabled, costing $4, was Matta-Clark’s “bone dinner,” which featured oxtail soup, roasted marrow bones and frogs’ legs, among other bony entrees. After the plates were cleared, the bones were scrubbed and strung together so that diners could wear their leftovers home.

“It looked like an anthropological site,” said the artist Keith Sonnier, another guest chef and a member of the extended Food crowd, one that also included members of Philip Glass’s ensemble, dancers from Trisha Brown’s company and other artists like Robert Kushner and Donald Judd, who lived in SoHo before it was called SoHo.

 

“You have to realize at that particular time in New York,” Mr. Sonnier added, “people did not eat bone marrow.”

But while it was ahead of its time as a restaurant, it was also a perfect expression of its scrappy, hippie era, when many young artists and creative people in New York and elsewhere had little money for good food — and few options adventurous enough for them anyway. The same year, 1971, Alice Waters founded Chez Panisse in Berkeley, Calif., as “a simple little place where we could cook and talk politics,” sparking a fresh-and-seasonal-foods revolution in America. In 1973 a collective of artists and communal farmers founded the Moosewood Restaurant, the vegetarian standard-bearer, in Ithaca, N.Y.

Mitchell Davis, a vice president of the James Beard Foundation and an adjunct professor in New York University’s food studies program, said that while restaurants like Food bubbled up from the counterculture, their influence eventually changed mainstream culture. “These people were not on the path to being chefs or restaurateurs or professional food people,” he said. “They were like: ‘Hey, we like to cook. We can do this. Why not?’ And in doing it they ended up knocking down all these barriers of wealth and class and status in the restaurant world.”

Without realizing any of that, we created SHARING ART. Our project consists on 2 artists and a cook developing art pieces related to each other and as a site-specific work based on a house.

Our first edition happened on sunday 20th of March and was a success. some photos below.

What is our intention?

Our intention is to exhibit art in a house, instead of in a gallery space, creating a different atmosphere for viewer. Having as a starting point the house itself, we invite 3 artists, one being a cook, to collaborate and develop a site-specific work.

The exhibition happens bimonthly and it lasts only one day, from 1pm to 10pm on a sunday.

People are invited to go the house to appreciate art an food.

Sharing art is a project created by Bianca Turner and Luciana Terepins.
