STATE LIBRARY VICTORIA, ALCHEMY PROGRAM

APHIDS x LONG PRAWN: GUTFUL

Developed as part of the State Library ALCHEMY program.

Part performance lecture, part snack exchange, GUTFUL responds to radical texts from the library’s archives to create a series of artistic dining experiences at the State Library of Victoria. Fusing APHIDS’ future-focused politics with Long Prawn’s divergent food thinking, GUTFUL will liberate the food-free zone of the library and turn it into a site for unexpected snacks, drinks and ideas.

GUTFUL is based on APHIDS’ mission to create Urgent Art For Urgent Times, collaborating with Long Prawn, State Library staff, artists and new audiences to have meaningful exchanges about our collective future.

APHIDS acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Boon wurrung peoples on whose lands we live and work. Sovereignty was never ceded and we pay our respect to past, present, and future Aboriginal elders and community, and to their long and rich history of artmaking on this Country.
