The crisis we find ourselves in today has exacerbated many issues, from violence against Asian-Americans and other minorities, to stark problems within our food systems including migration and exploitation. With this in mind, we find it appropriate that GRAPHITE Interdisciplinary Arts Journal’s 11th edition was guided by the concept of FRUIT.
Our call for entries asked, “how do you like your fruit?”, “how can we challenge the dominance of industrial production through alternative practices of growing and foraging fruit?”, and “how have colonization and diaspora affected the way we eat?” Now, these questions feel more relevant than ever.
