Local Artist’s Online Food-Sharing Art Exhibit is part of chef Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day
Janaína Vieira-Marques presents:
Tasty Bytes - A Global Kitchen Experience
BFA Thesis Exhibition
April 30 to May 17
The newest work by Brazilian-American BFA candidate Janaína Vieira-Marques, Tasty Bytes, will be on exhibit at the BFA thesis show at the University of Montana. Her work, celebrating personal connections, tradition, culture and food is inspired by her own experience living in the United States and staying connected to family by sharing food and recipes through video calls. Visitors to her piece will see two cozy, inviting kitchen spaces with a laptop available for them to video call people and share something food-related. Through this work, she wants to connect the art community in Missoula, MT with other food cultures, food traditions and the interesting people that inspire great food around the world. Her work has caught the attention of world-renowned food revolution chef and advocate, Jamie Oliver, who’s Food Revolution Day is the last day of the exhibit, May 17th.
People can participate in the exhibit personally- by visiting the exhibit and calling someone on the contact list, or virtually- by adding Tasty_Bytes and Tasty_Bytes2 to their Skype contacts and calling into the gallery while they are cooking, eating, or just sharing something cool about their kitchen or food traditions. The interactions that take place through her exhibit are up to the people that get excited about participating. Janaína states, “The unpredictability of my work is what inspires me. I can always expect to be surprised.”
The exhibit is a result of four years of study of arts and will be held from April 30th through May 17th. May 2nd, from 5-7pm is the gallery opening, where Janaína is hoping to connect food-lovers globally with a gallery audience.
The public is welcome and there is no admissions charge. The Gallery of Visual Art is located on the first floor of the Social Science Building at the University of Montana.
