Time/Food is a temporary eatery that operates on the Time/Bank economic system—a platform, organized by artists Julieta Aranda and Anton Vidokle, where individuals can pool time and skills, bypassing money as a means of value—allowing visitors to pay for their lunch in exchange for time credits and time currency earned by helping others in Time/Bank community. The restaurant will offer a changing daily menu of meals prepared using recipes provided by a group of artists who like to cook, including Martha Rosler, AA Bronson, Liam Gillick, Mariana Silva, Anton Vidokle, Judi Werthein, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Julieta Aranda, W.A.G.E., Carlos Motta and many more. Lunch is served Thursdays-Sundays from 1:00–3:00pm at the Abrons Arts Center.

ABOUT CREATIVE TIME
Since 1974, Creative Time has presented the most innovative art in the public realm. The New York-based nonprofit has worked with over 2,000 artists to produce more than 335 groundbreaking public art projects that have ignited the public's imagination, explored ideas that shape society, and engaged millions of people around the globe.
Creative Time seeks to convert the power of artistsʼ ideas into works that inspire social change and stimulate public dialogue on timely issues, while initiating a dynamic conversation among artists, sites, and audiences. A vanguard presenter of public art in New York, Creative Time recently began presenting national and global projects and initiatives, making it the only public arts organization with programs that have reached from New York to New Orleans, Haiti to Hanoi, and Dubai to Denver. These projects further Creative Timeʼs belief in the importance of artists in society and the power of art to raise consciousness, expose injustices, and imagine a better world.
