Avery Drawings & Archives in Maxxi Food Exhibition

FLW-Farm-Maxxi-showFOOD dal cucchiaio al mondo = FOOD to Space

MAXXI – Museo Nazionale dell Arti del XXI Secolo, Rome, Italy
May 29-November 8, 2015

An exhibition that tells us about how food crosses, changes and influences the body, houses, streets, cities, and the landscape of the entire world.

Over 50 works by different artists and architects that, in a presentation that ranges from the dimension of the human body to that of the planet, from the kitchen to the home, from the city to the region and the world, tackle the global political, social, urban and economic effects that the production, distribution, consumption and disposal of food have on communities and territories.

Avery Library Drawing & Archives has 3 drawings by Frank Lloyd Wright from his Pre Fab Farm Unit of 1932 in the exhibition.
