Feed Your Head joins together two visual artists with a physicist and ethno-mathematician to explore the aesthetic convergence of science and art. The exhibition focuses on teaching about science through the visual arts, as well as configurations of the world that are grounded in African-based visual systems. This exhibition makes for an intriguing collaboration in the arts and sciences through the rubric of the African Diaspora. The point is to bring these themes together in a shared aesthetic purpose. In addition, this project seeks to encourage partnerships by creating the potential for curriculum building that bridges the work of the museum with other places engaged in creative learning.

MoCADA is a community-based institution that maintains education through the visual arts as central to its mission. This exhibition has the potential to innovate new ways in thinking about teaching, learning, exhibition-making, partnerships and research in the visual arts – as well as offer an opportunity to expand each of the participants bodies of work through interdisciplinary collaboration.
