Food – Water – Life / Lucy + Jorge Orta

August 16 – December 6, 2014
Conversation and Reception will be held Saturday, October 25, 3-6pm

A comprehensive exhibition of the sculptures, drawings, installations and videos by Paris-based, wife-husband duo, Lucy+Jorge Orta, whose works collectively explore major concerns that define the 21st century: biodiversity, environmental conditions, climate change and exchange among cultures. Their models, machines, and contraptions for survival suggest ways to purify, prepare and transport food and water, or launch a world-wide humanitarian effort. Featuring pieces from their major bodies of work having to do with Food, Water, and Life. This show is the first major traveling exhibition in the U.S. of the Ortas' work, and Ben Maltz Gallery its only West Coast venue. 


British-born Lucy and Argentine-born Jorge, both with individual art practices, have been working in partnership since 2005 as Lucy + Jorge Orta, creating, producing, and assembling their artworks and large installations together with a team of artists, designers, architects, and craftsmen.  They stage on-location workshops, ephemeral interventions, residencies and master classes which explore the crucial themes of the contemporary world: the community, autonomy, dwelling, migration, sustainable development, and recycling.
