Guest curated by Sue Spaid and opening September 22, 2012, Green Acres: Artists Farming Fields, Greenhouses and Abandoned Lots addresses farming as both activism and art form. Featuring a real working farm within the gallery, a farm stand in the museum lobby, sculptures used for farming, videos and other installations, as well as multiple satellite projects in the community, Green Acres presents farming as art through a wide variety of approaches. Raphaela Platow, the CAC’s Alice & Harris Weston Director and Chief Curator explains, “Green Acres builds on eco-conscious exhibitions the Contemporary Arts Center has spearheaded in the past, including The American Lawn: Surface of Everyday Life, Ecovention and Beyond Green, and puts into context the nearly 40 year phenomena of farming as art.
