CLICK HERE TO SEE THE FINALISTS
NEW! THEMATIC FOCUS FOR SPREAD 4.0
For this upcoming SPREAD cycle, SITE invited artists working in ALL disciplines to submit proposals for projects that relate to food. This can include works by painters and photographers as well as artist activists and farmers that address food issues, food access, farming, nutrition, cooking and dining. In addition to receiving the funds generated by the SPREAD dinner in October, the winner of SPREAD 4.0 will have the opportunity to have their project represented in SITE’s forthcoming exhibition: FEAST: Radical Hospitality in Contemporary Art, opening at SITE in February 2014.

SPREAD is a community dinner that funds artists’ projects and creative initiatives. SPREAD seeks to provide micro-grants for innovative projects conceived by New Mexico-based artists.
Inspired by FEAST in Brooklyn and inCUBATE in Chicago, SPREAD is a recurring dinner event designed to generate community-driven financial support to fund artistic innovation.
At each SPREAD, diners pay a sliding-scale entrance fee for which they receive dinner and a ballot. During dinner up to eight artists present short proposals for innovative and yet-to-be-realized new projects. The SPREAD diners then vote for their favorite project.
At the end of dinner, the artist whose proposal receives the most votes is awarded all funds collected at the door to realize their project! Funded projects are presented by SPREAD grantees at future SPREAD dinners.
