For the love of asparagus

Check out “Labor of Love,” a photo series by Marie Préaud, at thecamp’s bar starting May 2.

As part of the 2019 cultural season, thecamp’s bar – a shared space where everyone on campus inevitably passes through, for a coffee, a drink, a meeting or a concert – has become a gallery hosting Vues d’elles, a series of exhibits featuring how women photographers see the world of today and tomorrow.

Starting May 2, “Labor of Love” by Marie Préaud is taking up residence for a month. If you’re at thecamp for an event or for training, make sure to check out the exhibit!

About the exhibit:

Marie Préaud studied photography in Paris and in the United States. Her portraits and culinary photographs built her reputation. For the 350-year anniversary of asparagus in Germany, she seized the opportunity to work on one of her favorite topics, pleasure. During two years of harvests, Marie Préaud photographed producers, agricultural workers, seasonal workers and even the Queen of Asparagus. She also shined a light on the plants and tools. With monochromatic collages, she developed, under the name of  “Labor of Love,” a love of the work and the harvest of this “king of vegetables.”

Limited space available for opening night in the presence of the artist, May 2 from 6 to 8pm, upon registration here.
