X Species Adventure Club EAT ME @ Postmasters Gallery

For the EAT ME exhibition curated by Paulina Bebecka at Postmasters the Cross(x)Species Adventure Club dinner will explore the pleasures of indulging and the important question: can our personal and public pleasures become a potent force of environmental transformation?  The answer is yes, of course, since this is the very charge of the Cross(x)Species Adventure club, but we will chart a map for adventurous eaters, and launch the schedule for continued ecological and edible adventures for the new year.  Apt for the season of excess, we explore the excesses of “post-climate” seasons, and what these new ecological patterns mean for possible food systems.

A special non-human guest will be the in-season aphrodisiac who doubles as a local environmental superhero (think Superman as centerfold): Crassostrea virginica or the (Clark-Kent-Eeastern) oyster. For the hardy, we will venture to local bi-valve restoration sites before the gastronomical workshop, and over pre-dinner drinks we beam in Dhangal and Gotha, experts on food as ecosystem and place, from Central Australia. Join us!

This on-going lifestyle experiment is created by Natalie Jeremijenko,(celebrated environmental artist) Mihir Desai (gastronomist superstar), Emilie Baltz (design extraordinaire) of Fork & Design, and other intelligent creatures for humans and non-humans to explore a tasty, biodiverse future. Each Cross(x)Species event explores our gastronomic, economic and material interdependency on other intelligent and delicious creatures with a heady mix of art, food and science. Places are strictly limited. Bookings essential.

“Like the web 2.0 of the food systems, the Cross(x)Species Adventure Club provides a participatory, DIY, and multi-platform food systems approach; in short, food as a medium of art, adventure, pleasure and agency.” – Eyebeam, New York.
