BMoCA presents: Viviane Le Courtois’ Edible?

The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Arts is currently showcasing an artist who has been working with food as a source of inspiration and has been creating process based and conceptual installations since 1989. Her work is inspired by her surroundings and consumer culture wherever she lives or travels. She constantly uses found material or food for her artwork and continues to do so even 20 years later. She received her Masters in sculpture and installation from the School of Art and Research in Nice, France, and after extensive travels in Asia, she moved to the US and worked towards her MA in Art History from the University of Denver, where she received her diploma in 2000. Since then she has been featured in various museums and galleries around the world and works today as a curator, a teacher, and an artist. We are lucky to have a variety of her work here in Boulder at the BMoCA.

Everyone deals with food on a daily basis and therefore people don’t think about the connections between people and food. Viviane is increasing our awareness of this topic. Continue reading
