Bread on Earth is a publishing platform supporting the diverse dialogues that stem from our relationship to grain, in Lexie’s words: “I research bread and write about it.
I also place it into non-traditional visual contexts as a means of calling attention, catalyzing diverse dialogues. I occasionally make bread into sculptures and photographs, and am building a website and community surrounding it. That initiative is called: Bread on Earth”
Asier Sanz-Fast Food Trump International Biennial of Humor,2018
The Spanish caricaturist (Bilbao, 1969), who has now achieved worldwide fame, also won the public prize for the 29th edition of the International Biennial of Humor in Art.

“I’m obsessed with bread, but the part of bread that I’m obsessed with is the science behind it: how yeast and bacteria can assist our lives,” McGuire says. “I use bread and yeast and sugar on the glass so that it will transform the piece into something else.”
Partnering with the London-based Skip Gallery, an improvised gallery space inside a huge waste container you usually see on the side of the street filled with construction rubble and whatnot, Turk has created a tongue-in-cheek piece that is, among all things, very meta.
Inside the skip – a place to dispose of rubbish – we see a packet of Skips prawn cocktail, a popular snack in the UK. According to the artist, the chips reminded him of the sacramental bread used in the ritual of Eucharist by Roman Catholics.
The exhibition will examine the artists’ practice in the context of the major concerns of the 21st century: species loss, food security and food waste in the face of world population increase.
