DELVE Networking: Food + Art!

Tuesday, July 22, 7-9pm
at Made in NY IFP Media Center in Dumbo (30 John Street, Brooklyn)

Join Delve Networking on July 22nd at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP in Dumbo, Brooklyn, for a fun night of talks, performances and more all around the topic of FOOD + ART. Are those your favorite things, too? Yeah, we thought so.

Everyone is invited to join us: artists, creatives, arts professionals and art appreciators, and your friends and neighbors! We celebrate and discover everyone’s unique paths as artistic and creative forces. It’s a chance to learn from others and see where our worlds overlap. Each event begins with presentations by inspiring individuals, followed by complimentary drinks and meeting new people. We are interested in creating community and sharing information to help you succeed.

Two presenters:
Stefani Bardin explores the influences of corporate culture and industrial food production on our food system and the environment. She works with neuroscientists, biologists and gastroenterologists to ground her research in the scientific world. These investigations take the form of single and multi-channel videos, immersive and interactive installations as well as tools for measuring and/or mediating these influences. She’ll be sharing insight about her practice and new projects with us.

Emilie Baltz is an artist who creates experiences that provoke new connections within the 5 senses as a means of stimulating the individual and the collective. She works at the intersection of design, performance, strategy and the visual arts, her process mirroring that of a chef in the kitchen, mixing ingredients of expression by blending photography, product, environment and intention with the human senses to provoke new points of entry into the individual and collective experience. As a personal passion, she uses the eating experience as both lens and machine for cultural reflection and creation. In this sector, Emilie works to reframe, requestion and remind us of the fundamental place food occupies in our life as a portal into both the primitive and the civilized.

James Collier is a commercial and fine art photographer, and is naturally curious about the intersections between people and what they eat. A recent transplant to Brooklyn, James spent the last 10 years in California’s Central Valley, where he explored food’s role in cultural storytelling, historic preservation, and driving local economy. Much of James’s work in California focused on making food approachable, which led him to a series of projects documenting food at its source. He currently splits his time between commercial assignments and personal projects – both often involve farm visits and sharing food with friends.

DELVE Events are for everyone– artists, creatives, arts professionals and art appreciators, foodies, eaters, and your friends and neighbors!
