Abstract

Food, ranging from dinners to edible gardens, has been incorporated​ ​into public art projects since the 1960s. Artists as well as​ ​contemporary scholars have analyzed the​ ​movement’s historical​ ​significance, however, the question of its legacy remains open-ended.​ ​During the 1990s food became more consistently linked to relational art​ ​and social sculpture. ​This issue addresses food art in the public sphere in the past five decades​. The authors present essays, interviews, ​and artists' projects explor​ing​ diverse geographical contexts and power​ ​dynamics, look​ing​ at long-term ​and​ temporary projects, and focus​ing​ on​ ​participatory, sculptural ​and​ conceptual practices.
