Matthew Moore: Fieldwork Exhibition
Fieldwork features the work of Arizona-based artist, farmer, and food activist Matthew Moore. Situated at the intersection of art and agriculture, Moore’s social practice engages issues related to environment, food, and sustainability as means to increase consciousness of our relationship to the land and food production. Offering a poignant lens on the loss of farmland to urban growth, Moore blends documentary tactics, land-based installation, and community engagement to reimagine commitment to place in a global context. Currently participating in the LAND Studio program facilitated by the Art Gallery of Guelph and Musagetes, Fieldworkextends Moore’s focus on the American southwest to explore local landscape transformation. Curated by Shauna McCabe, this exhibition is presented with the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
